Well-built and richly structured, with bold aromas of blackberry, mocha, and licorice, showing layered flavors of smoky raspberry, grilled herb, and pepper. The tannins are big but ripe and balanced. Drink now through 2028.

PlumpJack's delicious 2013 Syrah, which is 100% Syrah aged in 65% new French oak, tips the scales at 15% alcohol. It offers a dense purple color, a big, sweet kiss of blackberry and cassis liqueur, and touches of licorice and underbrush. It is full-bodied, opulent, and best drunk over the next decade or more.

The Syrah grapes are sourced from two amazing vineyards in the Napa Valley – Hudson in Los Carneros and Stagecoach on Atlas Peak. These unique AVAs lend this wine its signature characteristics. The cool, foggy Hudson vineyard imparts this wine with a smoky, gamey nose layered with white and black pepper, while the sunny and rocky Stagecoach vineyard is responsible for the concentrated blueberry and raspberry aromatics. The Hudson vineyard also brings beautiful, bright raspberries, black pepper, smoke, finesse and a lively acid to the palate, whereas the Stagecoach vineyard adds dark fruit, great concentration, and structure.

Pairs perfectly with Roasted Lamb or Grass-fed Beef, a hearty Beef Stew, and Chili Colorado.
