2015 Lucero Syrah
Lucero is named for a star-like marking on a horse’s forehead, and inspired by the stars still glistening in the early morning sky when we pick syrah at Kingston. Our Lucero Syrah is less intense than its big brother Bayo Oscuro, and is a blend of different parcels within the greater Kingston vineyard.
On the palate, the 2015 Lucero is possibly the most approachable Syrah from Kingston yet. It is plush without being heavy -- completely harmonious. Its personality is friendly and open. Dark flavors (blackberry, black olive, roasted meat) are pretty characteristic of our Syrah, but the 2015 also shows a liveliness that is very inviting. Read more in Byron's tasting notes ››
