2014 Jack McGinley Syrah
A co-fermentation of Syrah, Grenache and Viognier, this Syrah has been a standout since the beginning. The nose is dark and voluptuous with aromas of berry compote and cigar. The pallet is provocative with endless layers of fruit, earth and spice: Smoked blackberries, morel mushrooms, and black pepper. The layers continue to evolve through the finish and into the next sip. I love this wine on a cool night while grilling some elk and watching the game. Drink now or age up to 10-12 years.
