Carlisle Rosella's Vineyard Syrah 2019
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands|
Low yields, impeccably-farmed fruit, and minimalist winemaking have combined to create this classic cool-climate example of syrah.
Approximately 305 cases produced.
The 2019 Syrah Rosella's Vineyard is a stunning 100% Syrah made with 20% whole cluster, aged in 20% new French oak and harvested just before the 2019 Kincade fire started in Sonoma County on October 23. Opaque ruby-purple in color, its aromas are pure and defined with dark cherry fruit accented by classic notes of violet, milk chocolate and white pepper. The palate is pure, full and rounded, with juicy freshness and a long, layered, floral finish. It's a restrained, ultra-perfumed Syrah for lovers of a cooler climate expression. 302 cases were made.
