WS 90pts. - According to the Wine Spectator: Smooth and velvety, delivering a warm, inviting mouthful of blueberry, plum, coffee and spice flavors that linger against refined tannins. Drink now through 2015. Winemaker Notes - The Genesis Syrah is selected from specific vineyards to emphasize luscious fruit and depth of color. This vintage was exceptional; resulting in a wine with bright red cherry and raspberry aromas augmented by oak notes of cedar and cinnamon toast. On the palate, it is very fruity and is reminiscent of currants with a strawberry essence that lingers, along with a bit of cinnamon spice, charred mesquite, and cherry wood. The structure is subtle yet firm. Pair with stuffed manicotti in marinara sauce or pasta dishes served with a sweet or spicy red sauce.
