Chico’s Hill Syrah 2012

Varietal

Syrah

Growing Year Info

This was a fairly mild year, similar to 2007 and 2009. The harvest looked like it was going to be early because of the early heat and bud break, but this ended up being a long, drawn out season with consistent growing temperatures. The wines have good tannins, structure, and a nice acid balance.

Tasting Notes

The 2012 Chico’s Hill Syrah has aromas of blackberries, mint, beef jerky, and kirsch. The palate is exotic and lush with pomegranate, blackberry, smoked meats, and hints of dusty chocolate.
