2018 Halcon Vineyards Syrah Elevacion, USA, California, Mendocino, Yorkville Highlands, Wine Review
This is 100% Syrah grown in a cooler climate. Purple in color, opaque and bright. The nose is nice with black raspberries, black olives, and slight bacon fat. With air, some herbal/woodiness comes out. Full bodied. Sinewy texture. On the palate, this is delicious. Light tannins but drinking tight and young. It took about four hours to really open up. Then black raspberries with underlying gravel and minerality. Long finish. This is drinking well now, but cellaring for five or so years will be rewarded. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years. Nice on its own, better with food.
