SKU: 11 Rossi

Every year I hold back one wine that I think will benefit with additional bottle age and cellar it in the warehouse under ideal conditions with the intention of later release. This Spring’s so called “library” release is the 2011 Syrah from Rossi ranch. 2011 was a cooler year and at release the wine reminded me of a cocoa covered raspberry, bright red fruit and crying out for a steak. Time has mellowed it and my most recent notes comment on sweet middle palate, softer, red fruit and the leather that is a hallmark of older Syrah. Tasted without knowing what it was, I thought it an older Australian (a bit like me, I suppose), and I liked it! For a special dinner and it should hold for another 3-4 years.
