The black ink, slate, and violet aromas beckon as you swirl and smell. The mouthfeel is soft with moderate tannins and aromas of brown spice, bacon, ponzu, and iron linger on the long refreshing aftertaste. 

If you are new to our Syrah, let me begin by imploring you to try a bottle. I have yet to meet someone who has tasted our Syrah and responded, “meh?” Sure, you ”don’t like Syrah” but love Côte Rôtie, Hermitage, Cornas, etc., all of which are Syrahs from France, of course (I love many of those wines, too.) I do understand why some people hesitate to buy a New World Syrah. There were a lot of indifferent Syrahs made out there over the past 25 years that tasted like simple, ripe, red wine. Bah, this is not Peay Syrah. Peay Syrah has character coming out of its ears. Take the 2021 La Bruma Syrah as an example. The black ink, slate, and violet aromas beckon as you swirl and smell. There is a depth to the iron aroma that expands on the palate when you take a sip. Though this is a not a bruiser and clocks in at only 13.1% alcohol, there is richness and density to the wine. The mouthfeel is soft with moderate tannins and aromas of brown spice, bacon, ponzu, and iron linger on the long refreshing aftertaste. Based on previous vintages, I would say let the wine age a year or two for flavors to coalesce and then try one every few years until it hits your sweet spot. This wine is delicious right now and full of pleasure but has the structure to age for decades.
