Blackberry and mulberry are layered with hibiscus tea, citrus zest, Niçoise olive, black pepper, cured meat, and redwood duff. The palate is complex and deep with a nice tension between the richness of fruit and the spicy herbal texture brought forth from some whole cluster fermentation. The full spectrum of just ripe red, blue, and black fruits fold into each other with savory appeal, leading to a long and elegant finish. This wine will benefit from food while young and will develop nicely in the cellar for 10 or more years.

The 2018 Syrah impresses for its precision and nuance. There is plenty of the textural richness readers have come to expect from Pride, but that is balanced by striking aromatic definition and presence. Floral accents, dried herbs, mint, blood orange and sage add brightness to a core of red/purplish berry fruit. Give the tannins a year or so to soften.

The 2018 Syrah shows the cooler nature of the vintage, with bright, juicy, yet savory notes of red and darker berry fruits intermixed with plenty of peppery herbs and floral notes. These carry to a medium-bodied, elegant Syrah with nicely integrated acidity, ripe tannins, and a clean, balanced style that's going to evolve for 7-8 years.
