100% Syrah $99
Released to Black Label Members in February 2021
"Based on 100% Syrah aged 22 months in 71% new French oak, the 2017 Intrepid reveals a dense purple color as well as a classic Paso Robles nose of smoked black fruits, white chocolate, ground pepper, violets, and dry-aged beef. It's rich, full-bodied, and powerful, yet it stays flawlessly balanced, has a lively, weightless texture, and delivers a great, great finish. It's not for the Northern Rhône-only crowd, but it’s a brilliant representation of this terroir that will keep for a decade or more."
