‘Wester Reach’ Syrah 2017 – 750ml
The source of the famed DuMOL Eddie’s Patch Syrah between 2000 and 2013 has returned for this second vintage bottling which replaces DuMOL’s Russian River Valley Syrah. Vine yields in their steep mountainside vineyards were reduced by 20% following a week of intense heat around Labor Day; the grapes lost a fifth of their weight making the fruit intense, pure and focused with thrilling concentration. The resulting wine conveys a “kaleidoscopic range of aromas and flavors that are precise and brimming with nuance and detail. It's an exciting, delicious and highly delineated wine with an energy that creates a great juxtaposition between delicacy and depth, subtlety and power, elegance and drive. Black cherry, boysenberry, lavender, violet and green peppercorn are all present in the aroma. There's lovely clarity of flavor and purity of cool climate fruit: cassis and blackberry offset by thyme, tobacco and cocoa nib. A lushness of texture takes over with lingering black fruits and lilac on the peppery, extended finish.” 6-6packs are available.
