Saga Pegot is a gorgeous single-block expression of Syrah, aged 14 months in French oak. The oak is present and forward, lending a great decadence to the wine by way of sweet wood and strong mocha chacteristics among the black berry and cherry fruit core. Additional nuances of licorice stick, crushed purple florals and thin mint add depth to the lush mouth. Firm, gripping tannins and a dense fruit core provide a texture like crushed velvet; drinkable now, but should age nicely through 2017.
