2018 Block 17 Syrah - Alexandria Nicole Cellars
This Estate-grown Syrah is produced from the Sara Lee Clone in Block 17 and was co-fermented with whole cluster Viognier grapes. This technique is Old World in style and increases color extraction and acidity while opening up a wide range of expressive aromatics. Our Block 17 Syrah shows no shortage of color in its deep, dark inky complexion. An elegant bouquet of blackberry, ripe raspberry, and acai pair nicely with notes of cured meat and allspice. The fruitiness of this wine carries through to the palate which is full of black raspberry, cherry, cocoa, and black currant. This Syrah has a long finish with soft, velvety tannins. If consumed prior to 2022, please decant.
