A first taste of our second wine

2013 Cockburn Ranch Syrah, affectionately named COSY

For no reason except we were together, my partner in wine and I decided to open the bottle of Syrah we made at College Cellars during the 2013 crush; the one we call COSY.  Purple velvet with a nose redolent of the Hungarian oak it was stored in and Chinese-five-spice with a pinch of white pepper, smooth and supple with a delicate flavor of Cassis and the German plum-cake (‘Zwetschgendatschi’) we make each summer.  The finish is reminiscent of cocoa with a note of cinnamon, not too long, but wonderful.  Pretty proud of this baby.

Cheers!
