Owen Roe 2015 Syrah Chapel Block Red Willow Vineyard

Description

(from an early ripening site; 40% new oak): Bright medium ruby. Inviting aromas of black and blue fruits; not a reductive style of Syrah. Densely packed but youthfully tight, showing a hint of primary black fruit sweetness along with medicinal notes of menthol and wild herbs. Made entirely from a Phelps clone, this wine shows a distinct stony character. Very unevolved but finishes chewy and long, with lovely perfumed black raspberry lift. I'm not sure I would have guessed the vintage of this gently extracted wine. but it's a beauty. 92+ Points Stephen Tanzer

"Densely built yet polished, with expressive blackberry, stony mineral and star anise flavors that build richness toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2022." Wine Spectator 92 Points
