Tasting Notes
This is our fourth year working with Cimarron Syrah and it’s become a real staple in cellar. Not only does this wine make its way into a couple of our blends, we always pull our favorite few barrels for a vineyard/varietal designate. We experimented this year and put this wine into a new French barrel and a new Romanian oak barrel for comparison. We were initially certain the French barrel would make it into the vineyard designate, but the Romanian oak proved to be far more subtle and complementary. Needless to say, we bought two more Romanian barrels for 2016!
