2019 Serenity Syrah
Peaceful and serene like a cool misty morning, the 2019 Serenity Syrah is smooth and satisfying. The grapes were hand harvested in the early morning of October 6th from the Cortese Vineyard in a cool climate area of the Coombsville AVA. The grapes were then hand sorted and fermented in a small batch to ensure optimal quality. In the glass the wine has a deep magenta color. This spicy, dense wine offers aromas of dark fruit tones, complemented with smoked meats and fig backed by notes of cracked peppercorn.

94 Points, Bonfort's Wine and Spirits Journal: "We love syrah, especially excellently made wines that offer up a rustic earthiness. This wine is exceptional, a beautiful blood red in the glass, with immediate spice on the nose. First sip offers up a rich and big wine that softens up after a few minutes in the glass. Dusty and smoky with an array of dark fruit and little hint of black pepper for spice. Thoroughly enjoyable and excellent in the glass."
