2018 Pure Yum
2018 Pure Yum

Deep scarlet red with shades of purple. Aromas of black cherry, hot cinnamon stick, slightly gamy with dried Herbs de Provence, dark chocolate nibs and rose petal. A voluptuous mouthfeel that is oozing with red and blue fruits and layered in silky mix of savory and sweet fruit plus minerality that carries the wine to a long finish. This wine is as sensual as they come and yes, it is Pure Yum!

Blend: 67% Syrah , 33% Grenache

Why This Wine?

This started as a chance to play with some Syrah and Grenache that did not quite fit into vineyard designate blends that I was making. So I started tinkering, making some magic, and I fell in love with this blend. Then, wine writers fell in love with the blend, and most importantly you, our club members, tasting room guests, and fans alike did too. You love it so I make more.

Tasting Notes
93 Jeb Dunnuck - The 2018 Syrah Pure Yum is mostly Syrah but includes one-third Grenache. It's a year-in, year-out winner, and the 2018 doesn't disappoint with its spicy, pepper, classic dark fruited, gamey Syrah aromas and flavors. Reminding me of a terrific Gigondas with its cedary spice and savory characteristics, it's medium to full-bodied, has a round, seamless texture, beautiful depth of fruit, and a great finish. 93 pts Jeb Dunnuck - The 2018 Syrah Pure Yum is mostly Syrah but includes one-third Grenache.

Reminding me of a terrific Gigondas with its cedary spice and savory characteristics, it's medium to full-bodied, has a round, seamless texture, beautiful depth of fruit, and a great finish. 90 pts Connoisseurs' Guide - Mildly meaty and graced with a light bit of spice but principally focused on ripe berries and plums, this moderately full-bodied mix of Syrah and Grenache conveys a good sense of fruity heft with enlivening acidity lending brightness and well-measured tannins providing a nice bit of grip. It is not too edgy or astringent to dissuade drinking in the near term, but it will clearly benefit from time in the cellar. It should round into its best some three or four years down the line and is sure to keep nicely for at least as many more.
