2012 Helix Syrah
Cellaring in 100% neutral oak permits the syrah to speak to its true character. Allowing for some breathing time, our 2012 Helix Syrah, with its rich garnet color, brings forth its Northern Rhone character, displaying aromas of light smoky gaminess, violets, attar, and a trace of lavender, baked blueberries and white pepper.
The syrah rushes the entrance with black olive, blueberry, baked fig and plum, and mildly scours the palate with fine grain tannins, a scratch of pepper with smear of boysenberry. Pairs wonderfully with grilled lamb or your meanest barbeque. -Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
