I also loved the Syrah from this team, and their 2019 Syrah is a beauty, offering classic, gamey notes of darker berry fruits, peppered meats, iron, thyme, and spring flowers. Rich, powerful and concentrated on the palate, this full-bodied beauty is going to evolve gracefully for 10-15, but there's no need to delay gratification either. Drink 2023-2038.
Wine Tasting Notes
Plumpjack Napa Syrah was grown in the cooler Carneros region of the Napa Valley. This cooler climate lends this wine its defining characteristics. The nose is packed with spices and white pepper, plum, blackberry, blueberry, and red cherry, and underneath, there is a suggestion of grilled meats. The flavors on the palate are plum, berries, spices, and peppercorn with blueberries and cocoa lingering on the finish. The palate is full and rounded with firm tannin and a beautiful acid providing the backbone and length.
