2014 Antagonist Syrah

Our 2014 Antagonist is a dark and concentrated wine that will deserve to see the inside of a cellar for several years. The wine’s aromatics are a veritable bowl of dark and blue fruits, leading with black cherries and black berries and falling into aromatics of smoke and meat and hints of wet stone, sandalwood and sweet spices. The smooth fruit profile is nearly identical on the palate as it is aromatically, with sweet dark fruits taking center stage.
