From an outstanding vintage marked by a long, slow ripening season, the 2018 Baby Bear Syrah is a handsome, intensely colored wine loaded with wild blackberry, fresh blueberry, and dark, spicy aromas and flavors. A streak of olive tapenade, smoked charcuterie, and freshly cracked black pepper add interest across a textured palate laced with silky tannins and vibrant acidity. The finish is long and refined.

Impeccably balanced and refined yet plump with personality, this red offers multilayered blueberry and huckleberry flavors accented by black olive and smoky cracked pepper. Finishes with rich, polished tannins. Drink now through 2030. 237 cases made.

Fruit and barrel intertwine on the aromas, with notes of char, roasted coffee bean, vanilla and dark fruit. The palate is creamy in feel, showing intensity and sophistication. Baking spice notes linger on the finish. Oak plays a prominent part but plays it well.

Firm and focused, with classic aromas of roasted meats, lavender, soft plummy tones and black pepper, the 2018 Syrah Baby Bear is delightful and spicy in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, the wine unpacks across the palate, revealing a broad and juicy fruit-forward mouthfeel with fine-grained tannins before ending with a long, spicy finish. Bravo!

Ripe black fruits, smoked herbs, graphite, and spicy, peppery herb and floral notes emerge from the 2018 Syrah Baby Bear, a medium-bodied, elegant, incredibly pretty, balanced Syrah that can be drunk today or cellared for 8-10 years. This estate continues to play at a very high level, and this is another terrific wine.
