Etnyre 2014 Quin’s Vineyard Syrah
The 2014 Etnyre Syrah is from a vintage that is uniformly described as exceptional. Loaded with ripe black and red fruits, and a nose of white pepper and hanged meat, and a haunting floral quality, the wine has layers of complexity with a broad display of bright red ripe fruit on the palate, and a long finish with notes of powdered cacao, mocha and spice. This wine is drinking superbly now. The 2014 Etnyre Syrah was in the barrel for 18 months, and has the acid, structure, and the fine tannins to suggest that this wine will continue to improve over another 3-5 years minimum. Cool grown syrah typically requires 2-3 years past the vintage date to evolve and this wine continues to improve and impress since bottling. Our inaugural release of Etnyre 2005 Syrah continues to display ripe fruit and exquisite structure, and continues to evolve wonderfully.
Etnyre 2015 Quin’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
The 2015 Etnyre Pinot is dark and pretty, with laser-like purity of fruit. Cherry and strawberry, as well as spice notes are present on the nose. On the palate, the wine continues the ripe red fruit and spice notes with a long and harmonious finish. The 2015 Etnyre Pinot Noir is typical of the wines coming from this vineyard, with a strong and balanced backbone of acidity, and fine tannins. This wine will also reward those who are able to wait 3-5 years.
