Morgan G17 Syrah 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
Wine EnthusiastThis extremely bright Syrah shows the influence of newish winemaker Samuel Smith, who brings a crystallized focus to the variety, starting with aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry, asphalt and rosemary blossom. The palate is very floral, with candied lavender, lilacs and violets, and the red fruit is snappy and fresh. White pepper adds spice.
Wine SpectatorBroad and snappy, with raspberry, tarragon and pepper flavors that persist toward moderate tannins. Best after 2019. 1,488 cases made.
