2014 Ad Lucem DayStar Syrah - Slide Mountain
Bold hues of eggplant purple and eminence are typical of Syrah from this site. The aromatics harmonize between lifted plum and huckleberry alongside savory components of worcestershire, light smoke and cocoa. The entry is rounded and sweet with blue and black fruits settling on the palate. A streak of minerality from the site’s ancient volcanic soils carries the wine from mid to finish with fine, talc like tannins and an acid profile to support the fruit weight.
