2015 Limerick Lane Syrah Headpruned Block Russian River Valley

Age-worthy Russian River Syrah

2015 Limerick Lane Cellars Syrah Headpruned Block Russian River Valley

This heady Syrah is wreathed in aromas of tobacco, violets, anise seed, black pepper, and blackberries. Dense and concentrated, it has a texture like fine sandpaper carrying waves of black bramble fruits. A juicy mid-section adds a pop of surprise refreshment amidst the darkness, then vanishes in a finish of cedar and pine forest.

Age this wine for five years, even ten. If you do open it now, pair it with salumi, rare beef, and aged cheeses (especially of sheep’s milk).
