The 2014 Syrah Black Bart Stagecoach Vineyard is blended with 1% Viognier. This is a big, mineral-laced Syrah with crushed rock, blackberry, earth and a muscular, masculine style. The minerality dominates the aromatics and flavor profile at this early stage of its development. This is serious, full-throttle, pedal-to the-metal Syrah that should age for 15 or more years, but needs some time in the bottle. Give it 4-5 years and drink it over the following two decades.

A concentrated, full-bodied and dense explosion of chocolate, plum jam and smoky oak, this wine is powerful and well integrated, smooth on the palate with its oak well tucked in. From a mighty mountainous vineyard, it captures the soul of the variety from a standpoint of ripeness and grip.
