2019 Singer Baker Lane Estate Syrah

Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
After an impressively robust yield in 2018, the 2019 growing campaign led to a smaller than average yield from our Estate vineyard of uncommonly intense and perfectly mature grapes. The resulting wine shows all of the characteristic spice and dark fruit notes that have always distinguished the Estate Syrah albeit with a marked extra measure of aromatic heft, fruit depth, and beautifully integrated structure. Think violets, oriental spice, dark berries and cassis, all kissed by a whisper of smoke.
