2014 Rhyme | Reason
15.2% Alc. by Vol.
Introducing the 2014 Rhyme | Reason Syrah from Konnowac Vineyard in the Rattlesnake Hills AVA.
This wine is 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier. Made in the French Côte Rôtie style, co-fermenting both Syrah and Viognier from the start. This wine was aged in once-filled French oak barrels for 36 months.
This Syrah has a dark opaque purple color that lingers on the side of the glass as you swirl.
The Co-ferment of Viognier adds aromas of fragrant raspberry, violets and bacon. Flavors of dark ripe warm summer plum, blackberry and a hint of leather, finishing with firm yet soft tannins and subtle fresh-cracked black pepper.
