18 Colibri Syrah Clone 99
The late-ripening French clone 99 was taken directly from the famous Beaucastel Vineyard in the Southern Rhone of France near Avignon. Despite having bigger berries and clusters than most other clones, it consistently gives rise to the richest, darkest wines at the Colibri Vineyard. This vintage is no exception, displaying blackberry, boysenberry, smoked meats, and wonderful earthy spices. This bottling should improve for five or more years and should pair beautifully with strong and savory meat dishes such as lamb and seasoned beef. This is seriously good Syrah!
