2015 FLUX SYRAH, MADDER LAKE
The 2015 Flux Syrah from Madder Lake Vineyard in Lake County is a hedonistic blockbuster! Strutting aromas of ripe blackberries, black raspberries, ultra-ripe strawberries in cream, wild plums, bramble and fresh black cherries. Hints of sun-baked granite, violets and tobacco fill out the alluring aromatic landscape. While seamless at first sip, this is a huge and powerful wine with abundant purple and black fruit flavors and supple tannins. This is an expressive and delicious Syrah, perfect in the glass now and a keeper for the cellar.
