100% Syrah, SJR Vineyards, Rocks District, Walla Walla AVA
The 2015 Veritas Sequitur is an ethereal, illuminating beauty (I am admittedly biased). This wine has a dense, dark purple color with a compelling bouquet of black plum, framboise, white pepper, Asian spices, garrigue, bacon fat, truffle, black olive, stony minerality, and forest floor. It is a medium-plus bodied wine with very high flavor density. The palate defines elegance and finesse, with refined, well delineated notes of black plum, framboise, bacon fat, truffle, aged cigar tobacco, white pepper, garrigue, black olive, Asian spices, dark chocolate, and leather. The very long finish resolves with savory notes of truffle, bacon fat, white pepper, and stony minerality. The wine showcases elegant structure, exquisite balance, and incredible flavor purity. Dare I say it, this is as good as Syrah gets! This wine will continue to improve for the next 8-10 years and should drink well for the next 15+ years.
