Mission Codename The Magician
Today’s Saddleback Cellars 2012 Los Carneros Syrah delivers everything we want from a California Syrah. On the nose, the wine is beautifully fragrant. On the palate, it is complex and packed with a range of delicious flavors.
The fragrant nose exudes black cherry, braised plum, blackberry, candied mulberry, cassis, sweet spice, mission fig and mixed berry reduction.
In the mouth, you’ll experience beautiful balance - with dark stewed fruit, fresh fruit and earthen elements in perfect proportion. Mixed dark fruit of stewed black cherry, young blackberry, cassis and blueberry, combined with fresh blackberry, cherry and cranberry.
These flavors mingle with subtler flavors of rich cured meat, savory dried herbs, sweet spice and white pepper.
This wine will sell out, so please don’t dally! We purchased every last case from the winery and once we sell out of it, it’ll be gone forever.
