The wine from this tiny (two-acre) plot is almost jet-black, with a garnet/violet edge. Lavender and violets, black fruit and satiny tannins reveal more of the toasty oak than any other K single-vineyard Syrah. Grainy, textural and lush, with lots of pepper and citrus, this has the most sweetness in the black cherry fruit. Supple, silky, satiny and nicely detailed.
