2012 Syrah Estate
The 2012 Estate Syrah has typical aromas of a Nicholson Ranch Syrah - lavender, pepper, olive, cedar, leather and blueberry. Each swirl of the glass releases a new facet of the aroma profile. Aromas of vanilla, fresh-cut hay, clove, bay leaf, plum with a hint of bacon and smoke are gradually revealed. The wine showcases the flavors of blueberries, plums, raspberry and blackberry without being sweet on the palate. The acidity and tannins with savory aromas of pepper, olive and cedar balance out the fruit flavors perfectly. This wine benefits from decanting for 30 minutes or alternately a few vigorous swirls in your glass.
