2014 Syrah, Suscol Springs, Napa Valley


Cakebread Syrah, Suscol Springs, Napa Valley

About This Wine

The compelling nose of this deeply colored syrah features fragrant aromas of dark plum, cassis, blackberry and blueberry, complemented by hints of roasted earth and licorice. Fresh, sleek and impeccably balanced on the palate, with a wonderful texture and perfectly integrated tannins, the 2014 vintage delivers deeply concentrated dark cherry, blackberry and plum compote flavors that culminate in a long, racy finish featuring savory spice and characteristic mineral tones. Delicious now, this lush, intensely varietal Napa Valley syrah will develop additional complexity with another 5-7 years’ aging.
