2009 Stagecoach Vineyard Syrah

2009 Stagecoach Vineyard Syrah

Red black in color with aromas of roasted blueberries and ripe boysenberries. Lesser notes of red licorice and tea leaves dance in the background with a hint of cigar box. The palate is rich and full with layers and layers of flavor: blueberries, blackberries and sweet tobacco smoke and forest floor give the tongue many reasons to return. Excellent with barbequed ribs with a spicy rub. Can cellar for at least 5 years.
