Review

Rose petal, plum, black pepper and blood orange are some of the signatures in the 2013 Syrah Rodgers Creek Vineyard. Bold and powerful in the glass, with plenty of cool-climate savoriness, the 2013 packs a real punch. Closing bursts of acidity and tannin suggest the 2013 will benefit from at least some cellaring. The 2013 was done with about 25% whole clusters. A generous dollop (10%) of Viognier adds further aromatic brightness.
