2018 UNDER THE GUN Syrah

Tasting Notes

Jeb Dunnuck - 96 Points

The Syrah-dominated release from this estate, the 2018 Under the Gun Syrah checks in as 88% Syrah and 12% Petite Sirah aged in 50% new French oak. Dense purple-colored, with a blockbuster bouquet of smoked black fruits, smoked game, bouquet garni, and ground pepper, this meaty, complex, full-bodied beauty has terrific purity, good acidity, and ripe yet present tannins. It's beautifully done and has a complex, cool-climate-like vibe yet packs serious muscle.
