Melville Estate Syrah 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills|
Wine EnthusiastThis is an awesome expression of cool climate Syrah, with rosemary-crusted lamb chops, peppercorns, asphalt and elderberry-jam aromas starting the show. The palate is intense with cracked pepper, bay leaf, rosemary oil and sage, which play against riper black-fruit tones and elegant lavender flavors.
Wine SpectatorGenerous yet refined, with vibrant blackberry, mint and smoky meat and pepper flavors that build momentum and depth toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2024.
