We love cool-climate Syrahs and this 2016 is no exception. It beguiles, tempts, and delivers! Deep rich violet color with bight brilliant purple edges that is reminiscent of black berry juice. Aromas of ripe plum, black cherry, and a dusting of coco powder, clove and cinnamon with ethereal vanilla notes fill the nose. This is a fleshy, juicy and fruit forward wine. The aromas follow to the pallet with additions of black cherry, blueberry and white pepper. Lush black cherry and pepper persist in the long finish. This approachable wine is a hedonistic mouthful! Rich, velvety tannins make this is a full-bodied Syrah that can be enjoyed for the next 3-5 years, or it can be enjoyed now with a plate of barbequed ribs or smoked pork with all of the summer side dishes.

Multi-generations and a love of the land are at the center of everything we do at Dutton Estate. This vineyard designated Syrah is a perfect example. The vineyard was originally Tracy Dutton’s father’s property. It is now managed and farmed by Joe Dutton, his son-in-law. This wine is a brilliant dark red color with lavender edges that dance in the glass. The floral aromas are explosive! Rose petals seem to jump from the glass; along with raspberry, blueberry, black pepper and Allspice. There is a black pepper and mineral thread from start to finish. The Syrah is packed with bright jam notes of blackberry, raspberry and cherry. The rich flavors of berries and cola-fruit follow to the end. This is a big yet pretty Syrah with nicely integrated mixed American oak that provides a long, textured, pepper spiced finish.
