Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
It’s hard to believe we’ve been working with Cimarron Syrah for five vintages now. It’s become a real staple in our cellar. Not only does this wine make its way into a couple of our important blends, we always pull our favorite few barrels for a vineyard/varietal designate. After last year’s successful experiment putting this rich, complex Syrah in Romanian oak, we did it again, giving it an additional layer of smoky, spicy oak.
