2017 Red Heaven Syrah
2017 was another year in a row of very warm vintages which has given us one of the most approachable Syrahs ANELARE has ever produced.
With its sweet, floral fragrant waves of violets, lilacs and delicate petunias as they hover above a bed of dark berry fruit. This full body wine is incredibly soft and velvety, placing down layers of fresh, crushed over-ripe blueberries, boysenberries with hints of black olive, a sweet smokiness, loamy earth, and an occasional tiny pinch of sweet thyme and black pepper. A wonderfully long fruity finish eventually fades to black cherry and leather with a hint of caramel.
What a gorgeous Syrah!
