2019 Ruckus Syrah, now in its 14th vintage, is built with co-fermented Syrah and Viognier, and embellished with a sizable dash of Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackberries and blueberries mesh with garrigue, funk, tar, and stone all encased in velvety textural robes. Legendary Red Mountain vineyards Ciel du Cheval and Kiona vineyards deliver the goods for this remarkable wine. Delicious young, it will see a long and ever evolving life.
