The Myriad Syrah Vivio Vineyard 2021, a masterful creation by renowned winemaker Mike Smith. This exquisite Syrah emerges as a rich testament to the Bennett Valley terroir, showcasing an inky hue that hints at its depth and complexity. Drawing inspiration from its locale, it sets itself apart from its Sangiacomo counterpart, exuding a darker, almost cabernet-like character.
The nose is a symphony of black delights – blackberries, ripe and intense, entwined with the essence of scorched earth and a beguiling dance of black pepper. A touch of violets and floral nuances grace the bouquet, offering a delicate contrast to the boldness within.
On the palate, waves of California Syrah opulence surge forth, a testament to its origin. A symphony of flavors unfolds, accompanied by the subtlest notes of violets. The texture is sumptuously lush, with a mid-palate that glides silkily, a signature of its impeccable craftsmanship. The pure fruit-driven nature of this wine is captivating, making it an unmissable experience for connoisseurs of both Syrah and Cabernet.
Jeb Dunnuck bestows upon this masterpiece a stellar score of 94 points, commending its allure and captivating profile. Destemmed and aged in 80% new oak, the 2021 Syrah Vivo Vineyard radiates decadence. Red and black fruits intermingle, supported by a full-bodied frame. Subtle hints of chocolaty oak and spice offer a velvety touch, while sweet tannins bring harmony. This opulently styled Syrah, while youthful, promises enjoyment over the next decade, making it a cherished addition to any wine aficionado’s collection.
