The 2019 vintage was cooler again than 2018 and has yielded the most archetypal cool climate syrah we have ever produced at Nichol. On the tighter more delineated side and even less opulent 2018. The aromatics this year are high toned and delineated and speak to the nuance and sophistication of fruit this vintage has given us. Look for pretty red berries, lilacs and potpourri, licorice, and the typical game and leather notes we usually see but with greater lift and finesse Again a crunchy intensity and persistence on the palate that will really reward cellaring. Don’t let the delicacy of this vintage fool you, these wines are built for the cellar. We are very excited. Please decant.
