RRV Syrah! A much lighter & elegant expression. Plums, black cherry, black pepper, & blueberry pie. Pinot body with a Syrah's palate. Really tasty! 350 case production.

Beautiful wine. Smooth as a baby’s butt. Imagine Dylan’s butt when he was around 2 months old. Slather that butt with blueberry preserves, sprinkle some black pepper on it, and bury your face in it. Really get in there. Go deep.

Light bodied with a nose of vanilla, plums, and red fruits. This ain't your average Syrah by any means. A spicy palate with some rustic undertones. A touch sweeter than I expected but in a good way. Nice, long finish. Not a lot of fat on this one but it still makes an impression.

Much better after being open for 2 days. Great fruit forward, but some nice herbal tone as well. A good Syrah.
