Our 2014 Syrah is medium bodied and boasts stunning, delicate flavors and aromas of red fruit, dark spices, red tea, black pepper, and currant. The wine spent 13 months aging in 2-3 year old French oak barrels. Extreme limited production due to small plantings of Syrah. Will age and develop complexity for up to 10 years. 100% estate fruit from the Macari family farm in Mattituck.
“Syrah shows increasing promise in Long Island, but particularly with this gorgeously ripe, complex wine. It’s robust in stature, plump with blackberry and cherry flavors, but also shaded by nuances of pepper, wet clay and mushroom. Fine pleasantly astringent tannins and zesty acidity frame a long penetrating finish. Drinks beautifully now but should improve from 2020.” — Wine Enthusiast, 90 Points
