K Vintners The Deal Sundance Vineyard Syrah 2016
This Syrah saturates the palate with aromas and flavor. Black plum, shitake, toasted rye, tangerine zest, dried tarragon and aged soy sauce. There are many more that could be added to this list. All this perfectly knitted together with the most compelling and harmonious fashion. The wine keeps its end of the bargain and it’s the real deal!

|The 2016 Syrah The Deal Sundance Vineyard opens with black peppercorn ground over a bowl of black fruit, with aromas of cigar ash and savory herbs with dark purple flowers. Medium to full-bodied, the wine expands in the mouth to show a rich but chewy palate with lush fruit and grippy tannins across the back. It ends with a grippy finish that will take some time to come around or will be best enjoyed with food, now. 1,189 cases made.|

|This is from the Sundance Vineyard, which has volcanic, sandy soils at a higher elevation than the surrounding plots. The nose has aromas of crushed dried flowers and bright red berries that follow to the palate where a streak of sweetly spicy oak threads into the ripe, composed and elegant red-plum finish. Drink over the next decade.|
