2017 Syrah Viognier
This lively red is styled after the lighter Syrah wines of St.-Joseph, northern Rhône. It was co-fermented with 5% Viognier, which gives it a floral lift and adds brilliance to its color. The 2017 vintage offers a sweet & spicy nose of pepper, mulberry, violets and clove. The short time spent in older French oak allowed it to retain a lovely freshness, that together with lower alcohol levels and soft tannins creates a delightful, elegant wine. Drinks well now and should continue to evolve with age.
