Syrah Paso Robles Westside 2017 PharaohMoans
€ 99,16 (in Vat)
|Region||Napa, North Coast|
The 2017 Westside, made of 100% Syrah aged in about 70% new oak, has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and is scented of grilled lamb, olives, bacon fat, cracked peppercorn, violet, espresso, tar and turned earth with a core of ripe blackcurrants and blackberries plus red berry sparks. It's medium to full-bodied, silky and slow to unfurl in the mouth, demonstrating great restraint. It has a grainy frame, good freshness and a long finish. Lovely!

"All Syrah brought up in 60% new barrels, the 2017 Syrah Westside offers a thrilling bouquet of black (and some blue) fruits, bay leaf, bacon fat, chocolate, and spring flowers. With a Côte-Rôtie like meatiness and gamey, floral character, medium to full body, no hard edges, and fine tannins, it's another remarkable effort from this estate. Drink it any time over the coming decade or more."
