2018 Syrah – Ciel du Cheval Vineyard : Red Mountain
We’ve come to expect rich, dark fruit in our Syrah from Ciel du Cheval Vineyard…and maybe just a few savory notes to keep us guessing. We are showing the Tablas Creek clone of Syrah originally sourced from Chateau de Beaucastel of Châteauneuf-du-Pape by the Perrin family. The clones were propagated in the Tablas Creek Vineyard of California and on to Ciel du Cheval where they are making a wonderfully complex, supple wine with significant dusty tannins common to Red Mountain and valued when properly cellared over time.
