The 2020 The Language of Yes Syrah from Randal Grahm is a remarkable expression of the Syrah varietal. Its bold and concentrated flavors, harmonious structure, and intricate layers make it a wine worth savoring. This Syrah would pair beautifully with grilled meats, hearty stews, or rich and flavorful cheeses. It has the potential to age gracefully, allowing its flavors to evolve and develop further over the years.
Grapes for the 2020 Syrah En Passerillage were air-dried for three days, co-fermented with 20% Viognier and made with 50% whole clusters. It has a deep ruby-purple color and alluring perfume of blackcurrant, blueberries, mint chocolate, lilac, white pepper and garrigue. The medium-bodied palate is concentrated but light on its feet, with dusty-textured tannins and bursts of juicy acidity highlighting its floral perfume on the long finish.
