Winery Notes:

Very dark ruby-purple. Blackberries, sage, smoked meats, and just a kiss of espresso in the deep, concentrated aromas. On the palate, incredibly smooth and well-balanced with flavors of blackberry, white and black peppercorns, and again, just a faint suggestion of roasted coffee. Finishes quite long with very refined tannins. This can most definitely be enjoyed young. Drink from release through 2028.

As good as the Rosella's Syrah is, the 2018 Sierra Mar has an added kick of everything. Inky dark fruit, chocolate, spice, leather, menthol and licorice all build in a deep, expansive Syrah loaded with character. The 20% whole clusters are evident, but not at all dominant. More than anything else, the Sierra Mar Syrah possesses tremendous vertical intensity as well as purity. What a wine!

Plump and polished, with well-structured blackberry, cracked pepper, meat and espresso flavors that glide on a rich finish. Drink now through 2029. 276 cases made.
