2012 Neal Family Rutherford Dust Vineyard Petite Syrah, Napa Valley
Following the 2011 vintage, the growing season in 2012 was very favorable to most vineyards in Napa Valley and this wine is an expression of a great vintage. Intensely aromatic of violets, blueberry, orange blossoms, baking spices, vanilla and caramel along with a soft touch of oak toast. Sweet flavors of blueberry and wild berry syrups are followed by a very powerful mouthfeel. The lingering tannin and oak contribution enhance the thick, rich finish. A great example of one of the boldest varieties grown in Napa Valley.
