2012 Shadowbox Cellars Truchard Vyd Syrah, Carneros
We were very excited to work with the Truchard Family for this small production Syrah. The cool climate of the Carneros region helped to develop bright, full acid, and we blended in just 2.5% Petite Sirah to add depth and power to the back palate.
Flowers, tar, and chocolate abound in this deep Syrah. A full floral cycle combines with asphalt and chocolate for a power and enticing bouquet. The texture is layered with velvet and tar, ending with a rose petals and espresso for a lengthy finish.
