PlumpJack 2016 Syrah

This wine has savory aromas of white and black pepper, dried meats, and grilled mushroom along with the sweet aromas of blueberry, plum, and huckleberry pie. The palate is rich and dense with firm tannin, bright acidity, and a lasting finish. Like the nose, the flavors here are sweet and savory with blueberry, plum, au jus, white pepper, and grilled meats. The whole-cluster fermentation adds even more complexity with some green peppercorn and spice on the nose and a little bite in the finish. The oak imparts smokiness to the nose and bittersweet chocolate to the finish.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

"A velvety texture meets a complex structure, with black raspberry, smoky mocha and beefy pepper flavors that pick up richness and speed toward big but polished tannins. Drink now through 2026."

The 2016 vintage was yet another drought year--the fifth in a row in the Napa Valley. Though the little rain that did fall came at the right time. Our vines got a healthy dose of water before and after budbreak, when they need the water for a burst of growth. The spring and early summer were warm and dry, and the days grew hotter as summer progressed. It seemed as though we would have another early harvest due to the heat of late-August and early-September. However, the days cooled enough for our grapes to mature more slowly, allowing flavor to develop and tannin to mature prior to harvesting.
