Balanced and harmonious with dark red stone fruit, spice, mint, and lavender nuance.
Aromas of dark fruit, woodsmoke, and espresso are lifted by black pepper and allspice. Dense, sweet, and smoky flavors of cassis, bitter cherry, and floral pastille. Very good energy on the youthfully tannic, but persistently sweet finish.
Grilled butterflied leg of lamb with rosemary and charcuterie.
The 2012 Syrah Verna's Vineyard is a wine that makes its case with superb balance and harmony rather than through sheer power. Supple, forward and absolutely delicious, the 2012 has it all going today. Dark red and bluish stone fruit, spice, mint and lavender add nuance in a forward Syrah to drink over the next handful of years. Chad Melville got the most out of Verna's in 2012. The 2012 was fermented with 50% whole clusters.Vinous August 2015
