Roman Coppola, a Syrah aficionado fond of both the Australian heavyweights as well as the more pedigreed Syrah-based wines from the Northern Rhone, worked with the Inglenook winemaking team to create an estate Syrah that combined the nuance and texture of ‘old world’ Syrah with the powerful fruit of ‘new world’ Syrah. Although the Inglenook Estate is primarily planted to Cabernet, Rutherford’s temperate climate, alluvial soils and eastern exposure where the Syrah vines are planted offer envious conditions for producing a rich, opulent wine. The characteristics of this vintage show after spending time in a decanter.
