Halcon Vineyards-Syrah-"Alturas" Yorkville Highlands, Mendocino County-2014

Halcon Vineyards
"Alturas" Yorkville Highlands, Mendocino County


All Estate fruit from Halcón’s cool-climate, high altitude vineyards in Mendocino’s Yorkville Highlands. Could easily be mistaken for top-notch Crozes Hermitage (Northern Rhone Valley Syrah). Takes a while to open up. Spicy, earthy and tightly wound first opened. As it breathes, juicy blueberry, fennel, iron, lavender, black olive, smoked duck breast and bloody beefsteak emerge. Medium body, very light on the oak. Outstanding food wine.

“Sensational bouquet of black raspberries, caramelized black cherries, bouquet garni, smoked duck and chalky minerality. This gives way to a rich, full-bodied Syrah that has beautiful fruit, polished tannin and a seamless elegance that keeps you coming back to the glass." Dunnuck for The Wine Advocate, August 2016
