2017 Syrah

2017 Syrah
The fruit for this Syrah is sourced from the Edgerock Vineyard located in the Vinemount Ridge sub-appellation of the Niagara Peninsula, with a south-facing slope. This wards off late Spring and early Autumn frosts and gives late-ripening grapes the longest exposure possible to achieve desirable characteristics. Syrah needs all the help it can get in the cool Niagara Peninsula, and when it gets what it needs, it produces wines like this beauty. There is a balance of ripe and jammy dark fruit, notably dark cherry, plum, and blackberry. The combination of American and French oak lend some barrel spice, while varietal characteristics of black pepper, meat, tar, and smoke round out the bouquet. While not as extroverted as the 2016 vintage, this fine Syrah will dazzle for years to come as an equally complex, formidable, and ageworthy wine, especially when matched with steak au poivre.
