Castoro 2012 Syrah Reserve

Located on the Westside of the Paso Robles appellation in the ‘Templeton Gap,’ the Whale Rock Vineyard is a true gem. The vineyard is 100% certified organic and consists of over 125 acres of grapes. Castoro’s 2012 Reserve Syrah represents this cooler vineyard site with a deep ruby color and juicy berry flavors. The full mouthfeel and fresh acidity is balanced by ample tannins and layers of bay leaf, black cherry, earth, and rose petal flavors. The aging in oak barrels contributes to the smooth, mocha-accented finish. [+]
