2016 K The Hidden Syrah

2016 K The Hidden Syrah

Price: $70.00

Multi-layered Syrah from the ancient soils of Northridge Vineyard. Super focused black cherry, plum and lavender run riot in the nose. The palate is not to be outdone with black molasses, velvet smoking jacket, wild mint, black crushed volcanic rock, silky tannins, vibrant energy and a persistence that continues the ridiculously long finish. - Charles

“Flirting with perfection, the 2016 Syrah The Hidden is a classic example of the old saying ”an iron fist in a velvet glove.” Beautiful notes of dark fruits, damp earth, iron, and crushed rocks as well as ground pepper all emerge from this full-bodied effort that has no hard edges, a terrific mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a finish that goes on for over a minute. It’s a brilliant, brilliant Syrah and one of the wines of the vintage.”

95 Points, James Suckling
“Aromas of sweet earth, pepper, espresso, plums and blackberries follow to the palate. This delivers a big, bold hit of ripe, sweet and round fruit with a very encompassing feel, married with a class and breed that really sets it apart. Nothing pedestrian, but a lovingly familiar syrah. Drink from 2023.”

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Northridge (100%): Loamy, fine sand over silica limestone, these ancient soils above the Missoula Flood plain are some of the best to grow fruit. This site is higher elevation and has cooler evenings, which creates later ripening, lots of minerality and concentration. A hidden gem!
