Arbor Crest’s Syrah is an exciting wine that is full-bodied as well as rich and velvety. The grapes from both vineyards were hand-picked and hand-sorted with yields kept low, to produce a wine with concentrated black cherry and blueberry nuances. The combination of these two vineyards produces a complex and enticing blend. Balanced by a fine acidity and tannin structure, the toasty spices from new French oak add hints of nutmeg, clove and licorice.
