The 2013 Kamen Syrah was born from grapes harvested at optimal ripeness, de-stemmed and co-fermented with Viognier skins and sun-dried Syrah stems. We believe this proprietary practice adds both aromatic and textural layers.
The result is an inky, glass-staining powerhouse. Unbelievably fragrant with ultra-pure aromas of baked blackberries, boysenberries, candied rhubarb, tree bark, wildflowers, black cardamom, crushed rocks and candied bacon. The palate is lush, sweet and unctuous. Notes of black plums, sweet black licorice and mountain berries round out the savory undertones. The palate is hugely concentrated and complimented by abundant yet very fine, well-integrated tannins. While extraction and plushness are in the forefront, this wine embraces an overall spirit of seamlessness and length. The 2013 Kamen Syrah will drink beautifully now and will continue to evolve wonderfully over the next 20 years or more.
