Pride Mountain Vineyards Syrah 2021, Sonoma County, California

The 2019 Syrah is made up of 95% Syrah, 1% Viognier. “Gorgeous fresh savory flavors of bay leaf, menthol, cherry pit, bergamot, black pepper, and cinder just scream ‘syrah’! Structurally, the wine has a pleasing weight from start to finish but is elevated by a steadily building brightness. Although this 2021 Syrah provides fruit-filled pleasure, what makes it memorable is its savory range of intriguing flavors. Syrah, at its best, should for sure be smile inducing but it also needs to captivate your intellect with a range of complex flavors and the 2021 Syrah achieves this beautifully.”
