2013 Beauregard Vineyards Syrah   

The 2013 Nelson Syrah has a translucent light purple core with dark pink hues on the rim. The nose has aromatics driven by wild raspberries, huckleberry ice cream, cherry blossoms, damp violets with just a hint of white pepper, olive and faint oak spices. The palate is soft and creamy with balanced flavors of spicy black and blue fruit flavors including blueberry, black raspberries, wild flowers, white pepper and damp earth. I anticipate this wine will exhibit more savory aromas at it ages.
