2012 Grand Assemblage Syrah
Bold, dark fruit aromas and flavors of marionberry, plum and dark cherry meld with complex notes of vanilla pipe-tobacco, black currant, cola and red and black licorice. A full bodied entry transitions to young, fine-grain tannins and full mid-palate body. Mouth-watering acidity provides balance and anchors the ageability of this multi-vineyard blend from the Rogue Valley. Just over 2% Viognier is cofermented which lifts a floral complexity and emphasizes a fruit forward style.
