2013 Estate Syrah "Fred"
This deep blue-based red with a purple hue wine opens with the aromas of violet, lavender, bramble berries and currents. The palate reflects this warm vintage wine with medium weight, bright acidity and showcases the secondary notes of the fruit. Gamey nose with hints of tobacco and cedar. Flavors of brambly fruits, loganberry and spice persist in the mouth. The stem tannin leaves a lovely texture on the extremely long finish. Will drink nicely through 2020.
