2018 John Anthony Crane Vineyard Syrah

2018 John Anthony Crane Vineyard Syrah


"Less than one acre of “Hermitage” clone syrah on the Crane Vineyard has become the dominant expression in this wine. On the nose, powerful fresh blackberry, Chambord and preserved fig are followed by black pepper, olive and brisket. The wine is compact and opens up beautifully with time. On the palate dark berry and plum mingle with rosemary, star anise and bacon notes with velvety tannins. The result is a wine of incredible balance: tension and energy, plush and structured, sweet and savory."
