The Canihan 2012 Exuberance Syrah was produced from the Canihan estate vineyards, bordering the Sonoma Carneros and Sonoma Coast AVA’s, which makes this cool-climate wine very reminiscent of the Northern Rhône.
Dark ruby in color, the 2012 Exuberance Syrah opens with delicate, nutty, and fruity aromas of dark berry pie and macadamia gelato. The palate is soft and full-bodied with lush flavors of cherries, chocolate nuts, and roasted tomatoes, and it leads into a cedar finish with fine tannins and a touch of oak. One of Canihan’s consistently praised wines vintage to vintage, the Exuberance Syrah promises to be a special addition to your cellar.
