Tasting Notes from Winemaker Allison Tauziet:
The 2017 “IX Estate” Syrah is a myriad of intricate flavors. Combining floral aromatics of dried potpourri, violets and mandarin zest with hints of white pepper, saucisson and niçoise olive, the 2017 ‘IX Estate’ Syrah is both savory and luscious. Delectable notes of ripe blackberry and black licorice entice the senses. The suave, layered tannins on the palate lead to an extraordinarily long and decadent finish.
