Colgin Cellars IX Estate Syrah Napa Valley, USA 2018
VINTAGE : 2018
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : Napa Valley
VARIETALS : Syrah
A lifelong love of wines from the Northern Rhone inspired the decision to plant clones from Cote-Rotie and Hermitage in the rocky, volcanic soil of IX Estate.
The resulting wine is one of uncommon merit, with nuances of blackberry, acacia, wild herbs, and smoked meats. “IX Estate” Syrah is often regarded as “one of the most unique Syrahs being made in California today.”
The 2018 "IX Estate" Syrah attracts with alluring notes of violets, plum, and licorice. Warmed spice notes of toasted coriander seed, white pepper, and salt brine entice a sip and are complemented by salivating notes of smoked bacon. Deep, yet elegantly textured tannins frame the palate with a voluminous and juicy finish.
