Block 17 Syrah is distinguished by its deep, dark inky color followed with a full-bodied rich bouquet of fruit aromas, hints of plum, and ripe black cherry and toasty vanilla spices, with layers cassis, cedar, and cocoa flavors. This Syrah finishes long and toasty with soft, velvety tannins. To complete this delicate wine, the rich fruit was co-fermented with Viognier adding nuances of smoky toffee. Pairs best with peppered red meats, sausage, or other full-flavored meats. This is a young, bold wine, with a supple amount of acidity; if consumed prior to 2014, please decant. Best consumed 2014-2017.
