Rhys, Syrah Santa Cruz Mountains Horseshoe Vineyard, 2013

$104.99

People think of Rhys as a Pinot/Chard producer but their Syrah should not be overlooked as it is fabulous! And of course all the same principles apply to this grape, aand Harvey's hands-off Burgundian approach is a great way to produce Syrah. The cool Horseshoe site brings the grape climatic conditions that are quite similar to the Northern Rhone's. A few years of bottle age really helps round out this gorgeous wine.

Here is Galloni in Vinous: "One of the highlights in this range, the 2013 Syrah Horseshoe Vineyard is superb. A host of cool-climate Syrah aromatics make a strong first impression. Black pepper, game, smoke, tobacco, licorice, black olives, lavender and spices are all beautifully delineated in the glass. The expression of fruit is pure California in its radiance and overall depth. Complete and impeccably balanced, the 2013 Horseshoe Syrah has it all."
