2016 Scott Harvey J&S Reserve Syrah, Amador County
Grown in the mountainous Chapman Syrah Vineyard of Shenandoah Valley, Amador county. This vineyard is a steep rocky decomposed granite west facing slope. Extremely low yields from these highly-stressed mountain vineyards produce first growth quality fruit. Produced in an elegant Cote Blond French style. Elegant bright red fruits enhance this well-balanced wine. Aged in French oak cooperage to develop a well-rounded wine with firmly structured tannins.
Aromas of raspberry, pepper, clove, cherry and sweet light oak introduce fresh, bright, spicy flavors of the same with firm tannins that carry through the long finish.
