PLEASE NOTE, LABEL IMAGE INCORRECTLY SHOWS PINOT NOIR, THIS IS A SYRAH AND THE LABEL IS CORRECT ON THE ACTUAL BOTTLE.
If you liked our previous releases N.72 RRV Cabernet and N.73 RRV Chardonnay, I think you will love today's release, Lot 235 Russian River Valley Syrah.
Sexy, racy and virile with exceptional elegance as well as pitch-perfect density, this $50+ Syrah perennially scores 93-96-points from The Wine Spectator, Vinous and, more recently, the Wine Enthusiast. It is a gorgeous value at $22/bottle.
Deep garnet in the glass. Classic herbs de provence (lavender, thyme, fennel) halo cherry and red hot candies underpinned by meaty, riparian earth and brooding purplish fruit with a hint of chocolate. Elegant, seamless and focused on the palate with plenty of verve to effortlessly carry the rich density. Spice and earth provide a third dimension of depth in a long, sustained finish. Overall, great color, concentration and structure - Fabulous!
