2020 Bien Nacido Vineyard Block 11 Syrah, Ledge
An impressive, intense and very deep nose with notes of ink, ripe blackberries and black cherries, new leather, Lily of the Valley and asphalt. Very, very fine.
The taste is tight and massive but also with a refinement that keeps it all together. Stunning fruit and intensity. Notes of ripe wild raspberries, iron, violets and blood pudding. A minute long finish. Stunning.
