The best of both worlds. This is a powerful Syrah balanced with wonderful savory pepper and spice notes. Leaner and meaner than the 2014, this one comes closest to emulating one of my favorite all-time cool-climate Syrahs, the 2011 Bonny Doon Bien Nacido X-Block, and is the perfect partner for roast lamb. Dick Graff, who founded the legendary Chalone Winery and created the Chalone AVA, planted his own personal vineyard in this most unique other-worldly place and micro-climate. For Syrah, he chose the Phelps suitcase clone, resulting in this complex and beautiful wine that has been carefully stored for you to now enjoy!
