2011 Conoscenti Syrah:  A true "show stopper"!  Deep purple, almost bordering upon black at the core.  On the nose, an alluring bouquet of red and black fruits; notes of blackberry, cassis, raspberry and bing cherry.  The complex fruit aromas meld seamlessly with lovely floral and spice notes in the mouth.  The spectrum of flavors is broad and expansive, reaching the outer edges of the palate.  The finish is serious, rich and lengthy. Don’t let the vintage fool you.  Our vineyards in 2011 produced amazing, exuberant and delicious Syrah that will satisfy your hedonistic and cerebral cravings.  Drink now through 2018.
