2012 Smasne Block 4 Syrah Coyote Canyon Vineyard

“The 2012 Syrah Coyote Canyon Block 4 comes from the Horse Heaven Hills AVA and was co-fermented with 5% Viognier (with just under half whole clusters) and aged 17 months in French oak. It offers beautiful Northern Rhone-like notes of smoked herbs, olive, plum pit, violets and kirsch, and blackberry fruit. Medium to full-bodied, elegant, supple, and nicely textured with fine grained tannin showing on the finish, it’s an outstanding Syrah that will have 10-12 years of overall longevity. Drink: 2015-2024”
