Powerful aromas of violets, seared steak, sassafras, green pepper, black olive and blackberry exude from the glass. The supple palate is packed with flavors of coffee, bacon, sandalwood, and nutmeg which seamlessly transforms into a silky, yet substantially powerful finish.
Based on 98% Syrah and 2% Roussanne, the 2020 Dirt Worshipper is brilliant and just about jumps out of the glass with its exotic blue and black fruits, spring flowers, game, bay leaf, and bacon fat-driven aromatics. It's beautiful on the palate as well and is medium to full-bodied, has a concentrated, layered mouthfeel, good freshness, and ripe yet building tannins. This classic, cool climate-inspired, incredibly complex Syrah will evolve for at least a decade.
