Buoncristiani 2007 Syrah Artistico

This 2007 Artistico Syrah was handcrafted from small lots harvested exclusively from the Buoncristiani's vineyard block 1800 feet above sea level at Stagecoach Vineyards in the Vaca Mountains above Oakville. The different vineyard and barrel components are blended in several phases creating optimum complexity while retaining balance, varietal character, and superior quality. This superior bottling resulted in excellent concentration of dark berry flavors, ripe and round fleshy tannins, and intense varietal character. Expect to find wild blackberry, violet, blueberry, dark chocolate, white pepper, exotic spice, truffle and the Buoncristiani signatures of balance, depth on the mid palate and a lengthy persistent finish.
