Carte Blanche Three Peaks Syrah 2012


SKU 25225


A touch of Grenache highlights notes of wild red fruits and a hint of cardamom and spice. Dark raspberry and blueberry mingle with black currant, a hint of molasses and asphalt. The palate is full and broad, yet nimble and framed by fine tannins showcasing finely woven notes of black pepper, coriander, asphalt, and fresh baked blackberries. A plush and sturdy long finish highlights the wines' longevity.

Wine AdvocateAlso made in a Cotes du Rhone style, the 2012 Syrah Three Peaks is currently more of a fruit bomb offering a dense color, lots of black currant and blackberry fruit, medium to full body, and a soft texture.
