2020 Toshokan Perli Vineyard Syrah
Region: Mendocino Ridge, California
Varietal: 100% Syrah
Style: Unfined / Unfiltered / Organic / Native Yeast
Earthy minerality dominates in this savory expression of Syrah, lifted lightly by pretty floral notes. Not surprising given the cool-climate Mendocino Ridge site. Drinking excellent now and will continue to evolve over the years to come. Nestled among the native fir, madrone, and redwood trees on the rugged coastal ridges of Mendocino County, the Potato Patch block of Perli Vineyard is a stunning site that produces excellent cool climate Syrah. Tasting notes of crushed violet, iron, graphite and juniper.
