Lafond Santa Rita Hills Syrah 2016
Winemaker Notes :
The 2016 Lafond Vineyard Syrah is a plum color with crimson at the edges. A beautiful bouquet of boysenberry and lavender jumps out of the glass. Strong pepper notes are followed by blackberry and mild leather. Full-bodied with nice acidity, drink alongside braised pork, venison, and blue cheese.
This sleek red is compelling, with fresh black raspberry flavors that show a whiff of smoky meat and cracked pepper. Drink now through 2026. 2,000 cases made.
Roasted blackberry and coffee aromas meet with plump lilac and other purple flowers on the nose of this bottling. The violet and purple-flower flavors are thick on the palate, where a bright and sharp acidity makes for a potent sip.
