2016 Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah

Estate: Pride Mountain Vineyards

Region: Sonoma County, North Coast, California, United States of America


Tasting Note:May 27, 2018

Inky purplish red. Quite savory on the nose with cinnamon, iron, peppercorn, white flowers, dark berries and a touch of stone fruits. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus to full bodied. A bit raw on the palate. Layered as well with notes of leather, anise, spices, smoked herbs, dark berries, blackberries and black pepper. Needs a bit of time to develop and come together. Very dry with a lingering finish.
