2014 Syrah, Bismark Vineyard
Bismark Vineyard is located in the Mayacamas Mountains high above the city of Sonoma, in the sub-appellation of Moon Mountain District. The soils in this vineyard are rocky and well draining. Sitting at an elevation high above the fog line at 2100 feet, this steeply sloped vineyard benefits from cooler air temperatures yet intense sun light adding to the depth of this wine.
Dark ruby in color, the aromatics of this wine feature dark berries, white pepper, cardamom and subtle smoky notes. Structured tannins support flavors of black plum, blackberry, cocoa, white peppercorn and spice all wrapped up in a rich, sophisticated mouthfeel.
