Description

 

This limited release, single varietal Syrah has a great tannin structure that is complimented by the smooth bourbon character that can only come from aging in Willetts Sour Mash Bourbon Barrels.

Bold bourbon aromas lead to luscious flavors of blackberry & blueberry bourbon jam, silky dark toffee and leather notes, roasted meat, vanilla, grippy tannins on the finish. This Syrah is dedicated to our winemaker’s father, William Sullivan, to honor his stewardship to our farm.  NOTE: 16.5% Alcohol

Tasting Notes

A tantalizingly savory, spicy, meaty and complex syrah to compliment an adventurous meal.

Pairings

Lamb, beef, cured meats, smoky bleu cheese, Camembert.
