Description

Details

WA (94-97) AG (92-94) Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The largest-scaled Colson Canyon to date, the 2013 Syrah Colson Canyon is classic cassis, black raspberry, graphite and toasty notes to go with a full-bodied, concentrated and layered profile on the palate. This got a big “Wow” in the notes, and while it doesn’t pull any punches with regards to fruit or texture, it stays lively and elegant. It will have 10-15 years of longevity.

 

According to Antonio Galloni - Violets, new leather, smoke, licorice, plum, black cherry and sweet spices meld together in the 2013 Syrah Colson Canyon Vineyard. A wine of remarkable depth and purity, the 2012 boasts superb intensity and depth. This is another highly promising wine from Joey Tensley.

 

Tasting Notes - This year’s Colson represents one of the most powerful and structured Colson’s we’ve produced to date. 2013 was a very dry vintage that stressed the vines and resulted in small, intense berries that gave us dark, intense juice. After approximately 21 days of skin contact, the juice was pressed off to French oak barrels for aging. 80% of the barrels were neutral and 20% were new, following our traditional aging plan for the Colson.

 

The resulting wine is deep and pure with woody notes and a decadent, velvety mouthfeel. Blackberries, black currants, smoke, pepper and vanilla round out the flavor profile. Drink this wine now or age it up to 12 years. 15% ABV. Rated 90+

Blackberry, licorice, vanilla long elegant cedar finish.
Dark brambley blackberry and blueberry jam, licorice, hint of vanilla, with long silky charcoal cedar finish. This young Syrah has tons of tannic structure, thus requires at least 3 hours of decanting before it begins to reveal its layers. Will wait a few years before opening another.
