2016 Carhartt Venture™ Northerly


Blend: 85% Syrah – Carhartt Vineyard, 15% Petite Sirah – Carhartt Vineyard

Nose (aromas): black currant, dried meat, sandalwood, leather

Flavor (palate): peppered meat, blackberry, tea, hint of ground espresso bean

Winemaker’s Notes: This is a beautifully textured wine with amazing mouthfeel given its youth. It has nice round tannins up front and finishes with elegance and length. It exhibits many cooler climate characteristics such as restrained, dark fruit and spice. Pair Northerly with anything off the grill including grilled vegetables or cedar planked fish. As with our traditional Syrah, this wine will also shine with Lamb, or any roasts with herbal dry rubs.

Ageing Potential: Now – 2030+

Additional Notes: This is wine that might never be “Estate” again. In 2016 we got enough fruit in both Syrah and Petite Sirah to fund our single varietals wines as well as this one. In addition, this is only the second vintage of this wine, so enjoy!
