2020 "il Padrino" Syrah
Bien Nacido Vineyard, JD 98 POINTS
"The 2020 Syrah Il Padrino Bien Nacido Vineyard saw a touch of stems (5%) and was aged 19 months in two-thirds new French oak. Coming from a cooler site, it has a deep ruby/plum color as well as a great nose of ripe blackberry and mulberry fruits, notes of charred meat, iron, and baking spices, full-bodied richness, ripe and integrated tannins, and a great, great finish."
