2019 Bayo Oscuro Syrah
The grapes harvested to craft the 2019 Bayo Oscuro Syrah are a single clone variety from vines planted in 1999 on one of our hillside areas where the soil is rich with decomposed granite. Since 2018, we have employed the use of whole grape clusters to broaden the spectrum of aromas and flavors present in the wine. 2019’s vintage contains an expression bursting with blackberries and slightly smoky notes, along with spices and fruit that dance across the tongue. The wine is fresh and vibrant, with lots of texture and intensity in the mouth. It is a very young wine that, while well-primed to be tasted now, will get better with age and be delightful to enjoy in a couple of years.
