2013 Fortmiller Vineyard Syrah
Fortmiller Vineyard consistently produces Syrah with dark fruit, structured tannins and plenty of acid. Barrel aromas of coffee, cedar, pie crust, dark chocolate and pumpernickel toast lead, while fruit and floral accents of Marionberry, blackberry, and violets take a supporting role. Savory notes and more dark fruit prevail on the palate supported by full body, medium tannins, and juicy acid. Continued cellaring into 2019 will allow the tannins to soften even more with full potential to age into 2023 and longer - if you’re patient!
