Blend: 97% Syrah 3% Viognier

"Hearty, deep and polished aromas of black currant, black plums and blackberry-laced fudge are thick and impressive on the nose of this bottling, which includes 3% Viognier. Power is the message on the palate, where booming black-currant and charred beef flavors ride firm tannins that tighten on the finish. Drink 2019–2030. -Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Westerly Côte Blonde is a compelling, very expressive wine that is just beginning to reveal what it will ultimately deliver. The Viognier adds a subtle white flower component to the exotic aromatics, while the palate is soft, juicy, and pure Syrah in nature. Dark fruits shine through, with a touch of licorice and spice rounding out the bright and balanced mouthfeel. Forward and precocious now, the wine will continue to unfold and develop over the next 10 years.
