2012 Syrah, Jemrose Vnyrd, Bennett Valley, Sonoma
Balanced and complex, this cool-climate Syrah comes from the famed “Cardiac Hill” block. With elegance and intensity, the wine brings vivid flavors of black cherry and currant. The wine has well-integrated tannins and finishes with roasty, mocha notes.
