This Syrah/Shiraz is truly a wine of place and the character of this wine is dictated by the cooler climate of the Los Carneros growing region. The cooler weather helps the Syrah/Syrah/Shiraz to fully develop ripe fruit character while retaining freshness and incredible spice. The nose on the 2018 PlumpJack Syrah/Syrah/Shiraz opens up with a range of fresh berries – blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, and cranberry.

Just behind the fruit is beautiful warming spice – cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg – along with black and white peppercorn. There are additional layers of more earthy notes – damp soil, crushed granite, and cured tobacco. The palate is full-bodied, with a round, silky texture that is beautifully framed by firm yet supple tannin. This is a beautiful and complex wine. 97 Points, Antonio Galloni
