2017 K Vintners Syrah M.C.K.
2017 K Vintners Syrah M.C.K. Bacon fat, camphor, black Italian cherry, Asian spices, olive, black pepper, dried orange peel, sea salt, cold stone and cool fireplace ash flavor surround this 2017 vintage. All this held together with great tension and displayed upon the palate as pure silk.
95 Jeb Dunnuck: Coming from the Oldfield and Boushey Vineyards (basically the same vineyard), the 2017 Syrah Motor City Kitty Oldfield-Boushey Vineyard is slightly darker colored and, as with all the Rhones here, wasn’t destemmed and was brought up in mostly neutral puncheons. Blackberries, smoked earth, game, chocolate, and chalky minerality all emerge from this beauty, and it’s a powerful, full-bodied, concentrated effort that will evolve positively for 2-4 years and keep for a decade.
