Cambria Tepusquet Syrah
The wine has a deep purple color with concentrated flavors of raspberry and blackberry as well as aromas of cured meat and mocha. The wine is medium bodied with balanced tannins that contribute to a round smooth texture. Nice acidity is followed by a long finish with nuances of dark berry fruit. This wine is a classic cool climate Syrah with a balanced acidity and true varietal characters.
"Stainless steel fermented and aged in 25% new French oak for 12 months, the 2016 Syrah Tepusquet Vineyard has a medium ruby-purple color and gives up aromas of dried lavender and desiccated violets with touches of cocoa, cast iron pan, crushed blackcurrants and blackberries, plus hints of menthol, charcuterie and earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers fresh, peppery fruits with a firm frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long and elegant." 91 Points Wine Advocate
