Hyde de Villaine, 2013 Hyde De Villaine Syrah 'Californio'

92
"The 2014 Syrah Californio Hyde Vineyard offers good varietal character in a mid-weight, perfumed style. For a wine made in a drought vintage, the 2014 remains surprisingly light on its feet and aromatic. There is good brightness to the sweet red cherry and plum fruit, along with enough freshness to drink well for at least another handful of years."

FUN FACT: The name Californio pays tribute to the early California settlers, or Californios, who brought Old World sophistication and elegance to the western shores of the New World. As descendants of the early Californios, the Hyde and de Villaine families strive to produce a Syrah that highlights one of California’s premier growing sites, Hyde Vineyard, while embodying the elegance of the families’ Old World heritage.
