Talley Family Vineyards Estate Syrah 2020, Arroyo Grande Valley, California

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Flowery nose of blueberries, plums, sweet fresh cherries, light oak, wild flowers and tobacco leaf.

Medium plus in body and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, light oak, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, light vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Soft finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very tasty Syrah from Arroyo Grande Valley in California. Elegant, fruit forward and engaging.

Still young, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

This Single Vineyard feels like a young Northern Rhône Syrah.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime. Easy drinking and good by itself or with food.

Syrah grapes were aged for 20 months in neutral French oak barrels.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.
