96 Points - limited                             
New release of Plumpjack's Syrah- limited.

95 Points Jeb Dunnick:
"The 2015 Syrah from PlumpJack was fermented with 40% Whole Clusters and raised in 68% new French oak. It’s a gorgeous, pedal to the metal beauty that boasts a deep, saturated purple color as well as tons of smoked meats, blackberry, olive, and wood smoke aromas and flavors. Rich and full-bodied, yet light on its feet, this powerful Napa Valley Syrah has a touch of old world charm and will drink nicely for at least a decade, although I see no need to delay gratification."

95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous):  "The 2016 Syrah packs a serious punch. Inky and explosive on the palate, the 2016 is shaping up to be another real gem from winemaker Aaron Miller. Even with all of its intensity, the 2016 has a good bit of freshness and structure woven into its intense, dark-fleshed fruit. Scents of lavender, licorice and blueberry pie add to the wine's considerable appeal."

Grown in Napa, but inspired by the Northern Rhone style, this Syrah exhibits a smoky, gamey nose layered with white and black pepper, with complementary notes of blueberry and raspberry aromatics. Well structured, the palate is full of bright raspberries, black pepper and smoke. This wine has beautiful finesse, great concentration and vibrant acidity.
