Napa Cellars Dyer Vineyard Syrah 2017
T.A.: 0.58 g / 100ml
100% French oak, 55% new
The Napa Cellars 2017 Dyer Syrah showcases a deep purple hue in the glass. Vivacious aromas of black cherry, blackberry, blueberry jam, fig, graphite on the nose are followed by subtle hints of rose petal, dark toast and molasses. Flavors of rich blueberry notes, dominated by toasty oak and hints of candied blackberry, spiced oak, vanilla and allspice on the finish. This ripe, concentrated, full bodied wine holds a great presence with chewy tannins and excellent length.
Dyer Vineyard is situated on a sunny, northwest hillside of Carneros in the southern part of Napa Valley, where the climate is relatively cool and the fruit ripens slowly and evenly. The soil is composed of clay loam, the slopes provide great drainage, and the vines receive minimal irrigation—ideal conditions for the Napa Cellars 2017 Dyer Syrah.
