CONSTANT Diamond Mountain Vineyard's 2014 Syrah hails from our 3-acre Constancii Vineyard on the southwest corner of the property. Surrounded by fir trees and thick forest, the Syrah grapes in Constancii benefit from mineral-rich, volcanic soil, shelter from strong mountaintop winds, and optimal sun exposure. Deep purple in hue, the 2014 vintage is a masculine, mountain Syrah with aromas of clove, licorice, and a hint of black olive. Each sip delivers waves of black cherry, subtle notes of peppercorn, wild game, and an undertone of earthy complexity. With silky tannin and substantial structure this Syrah finishes elegantly and smoothly and is capable of cellaring for at least a decade. Only 14 barrels produced.
