Review

A new offering, the opaque purple-colored 2012 Syrah Cole Creek Vineyard (only 88 cases) has 6% Viognier co-fermented. It offers up aromas of roasted meats, bouquet garni, lavender and a hint of honeysuckle. Full-bodied and luscious with no hard edges and a velvety, voluptuous texture, it can be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years.
