Inviting aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, black olive and cigar box. Flavors mimic the aromas with smoky blackberry, boysenberry and white pepper. Rich and luscious, rounding out with chewy, thick tannins and a long finish.

Ratings
92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Syrah Estate reveals spicy black pepper, anise and cloves notes with a core of blackberries and black currants plus a waft of garrigue. The palate is a little oak dominated at this youthful stage, overshadowing the rich, ripe core of black fruits and spice box notes with rounded tannins and seamless acid to support, finishing just a little hot. With a couple more years in bottle, everything should fall into place in this promising beauty, although I’ve scored it conservatively for now."; 92 Points - Wine Spectator.

Production Notes
2014 was a prime year, giving us wines of both finesse and concentration. We brought in a bountiful crop of very tasty fruit.
Vineyard Notes
We have a special love for Syrah at Chalk Hill Estate. Our location in the warm end of the cool Russian River Valley is perfect for bringing out all the unique characteristics of this fabulous variety. Our Syrah is planted on a steep southwest-facing hillside, made up of rocks and volcanic soil. It’s as close to the Rhone Valley as we get!
