2015 Halcon Alturas Estate Syrah | Yorkville Highlands Mendocino County California 750ml

The vineyard sites are extreme in altitude, the farming practices are rigorously organic, and the winemaking is attentive without being overbearing. These three aspects combine for wines that are pure, full of expression, and hard to resist. | Falling Bright

The 2015 Syrah Alturas is also a beauty that has a passing resemblance to a good vintage of Guigal's Cote Rotie la Mouline (just with less oak). Violets, incense, spring flowers, blackberries and blueberry notes all flow to a full-bodied, elegant, seamlessly textured Syrah that has plenty of classic pepper and spice, solid mid-palate depth and ripe tannin on the finish. It needs an hour in the decanter if drinking over the coming 2-3 years, and will have 15+ years of overal longevity. | 94 points, Jeb Dunnuck for jebdunnuck.com

On the nose, black fruits, smoke, roasted meats and lavender. Rich on entry, smooth and elegant through the mid-palate. Flavors of black plum, black fig, and anise. Finish is complex, with a great acidic backbone and tannic structure. Co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier, this blend of Chave, Chapoutier and Tablas Creek clones are fermented with native yeasts 40% whole cluster and aged for 16 months in 15% new French oak. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. 275 cases produced. | 4Play Wines for Halcon Vineyards
