2015 Caldwell Syrah Rosé Joy
Got lucky enough to try this after their regular Rose. Darker and deeper in color. Similar nose but with more layers, fresh and bright red berries. Very well integrated and put together. Moderate acidity (6.5/10) that has been muted by some of the sweetness. So much more floral, sweet, raspberries, strawberries, and even more red berries. Medium plus bodied in perfect balance. All going forward towards a long and lingering finish.
All the fruit comes from the Caldwell Estate Vineyard, more specifically the Kreuzer Canyon, Block 15. Made of 100% Syrah and aged for 5 months in 100% new French oak. Only 130 cases produced and 14.2% alcohol.
2016 till 2021.
Price Point:$$$ - Tasted at the wine estate. Can be purchased for $75.00.
