Description
Les Voisins, or "the neighbors" Syrah is a real expression of the Yorkville Highlands appellation, reflecting the rocky schist soils and the steep well-drained slopes. On the nose, hints of lavender and blueberry open up to reveal grilled meats and Mediterranean herbs. Sturdy tannins and a nervy grip give this wine its spine. Pop it open, decant it, and give it an hour - the aromas and flavors will intensify and linger long on the palate.

On the nose, hints of lavender with violet, and blueberry. Sturdy tannins and a nervy grip give this deep red wine its spine. As the wine opens up, savory aromas of seared meats and rosémary emerge.
