2019 Thompson Vineyard Syrah
This medium- to light-bodied wine exhibits a lively nose of red fruits, leather, green peppercorn and rose petals. On the mouth, the ripe fruits dance with pepper, blueberry, and cranberry. There is nice minerality, balanced acidity, and a silky, long-lasting finish. The wine is easy to drink, with or without food.
