Robert Biale Royal Punishers Petite Syrah 2019
Robert Biale Royal Punishers Petite Syrah has a deep black ruby colour. The complex nose opens with aromas of ripe red plum, currants, cherry pie, violets, figs, molasses and blackberry. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate with wide grained tannins, a fresh acidity and textured layers. Juicy blackberry and plum flavours blend with complex notes of chocolate cake, oak spice and a hint of black pepper. Closes in a long and lingering finish.
100% Petite Syrah. The fruit for this wine comes from the Robert Biale "Royal Punishers" vineyard in Napa Valley, California. Known for its dark colour, firm structure, and deep blue and black fruit flavours, Petite Syrah is perfectly suited to Napa Valley’s moderate and dry growing season.
The wine ages in Burgundian oak for 17 months.
