20 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. A bit riper than some of our offerings in the past, this wine has classic blackberry and boysenberry, marked black-green herbal notes, and a rich, expressive palate. This is a wine to be enjoyed with highly seasoned beef and will also hold up to a host of rich stews and wild game.
