2015 John Anthony Reserve Syrah 750 mL
"Our inaugural release of the Reserve Syrah has taken its rightful place as the single best barrel of our immensely popular Rhone varietal from the 2015 vintage. A complex array of dark fruit scents with cocoa, tapenade and wild game develops with time in the glass and aeration. The texture is broad and commanding with a tension that implies significant aging potential. Flavors of boysenberry, plum sauce, cured meat and black olive are well integrated and will enhance their expression with more time in the cellar. This wine can be enjoyed now with at least an hour of encouraged decanting. Less than 25 cases produced."
