2015 Syrah (Cellar Aged Release)
Syrah from Rossi Ranch Vineyard tends to have lots of tannins which can be astringent (think tea bag in water too long) and have high acidity. These two things together can lead to harsh wines unless the right picking decision is made. The positive aspect is when you get it just right and the tannins are rounded and soft, and the wines have excellent texture and age wonderfully. This is why it’s often the wine I choose to hold back to become my cellar selection and why it’s the last of the vineyard designated Syrah wines to be released. This ‘15 version was my favorite in the multi-vintage Rossi Ranch tasting we did this last Summer and I expect it to have a great cellar life. It has the fruit to balance the soft tannins and would be perfect with hearty meals. Originally released back in 2019 but I know sometimes it is difficult to find ideal storage conditions, so I did it for you! I kept back 70 cases for re-release for Spring.
