Winery Note:

This rugged vineyard always delivers some of darkest, most extracted wines we produce. After three years of drought, the 2015 vintage gave us that big extraction and then some. Look for notes of black plums and blackberries as well as vanilla, black and white pepper and smoked meats. This Colson is drinking well now but will continue to age nicely over the next 10 to 12 years.

Wine AdvocateThe darkest colored in the lineup and from tiny yields, the 2015 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard sports a glass-staining purple color to go with rugged, sage brush, wild herbs and purple fruit characteristics. It has plenty of tannin, and is less obviously sweet than the 2014.

Wine SpectatorThere's plenty of power and torque in this inky red. Aromas of ripe blueberry, tar and licorice open to complex flavors of smoky plum and peppered beef. The tannins are big but refined. Drink now through 2027. 550 cases made.
