2016 Icon Syrah, Ballard Canyon Estate
At our location in the Ballard Canyon AVA, Sauvignon Blanc & Syrah flourish, exemplifying our long held mission of producing the highest quality wines with a terroir-driven focus. Choosing blends that captured the essence of each particular vintage, we produced a small amount of these distinguished varietals in a style that can be enjoyed well into the future. We are thrilled to share with you a new, extremely limited, line for RUSACK Vineyards.
Rich & inky in color, this wine balances lively expressions of raspberry, blackberry, & rhubarb with the subtle nuances of graphite & wet stone. The palate builds, with smooth velvety tannins keeping the finish long & lasting. It's a wine that demonstrates the magic of Ballard Canyon.
Barrel fermented for 34 months in French Oak before being bottled in August of 2019, this Syrah is our oldest aged wine. 24 Cases Produced.
