Morgan G17 Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah 2017 Rated 92WE EDITORS CHOICEMore from Morgan
Wine Enthusiast Review
This 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 Tasting Notes
This Rhone-style blend has a rich ruby red color, highlighted with purple edges. Dried plum, raspberry, cinnamon, and hints of rose petal jump out of the glass. The wine is medium-full bodied with soft tannins, offering a mouthful of dark fruit and savory herbs. Its weight and balance make it a perfect pairing with anything off the grill.
90% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and 5% Tempranillo
