Perhaps Markus’ most age-worthy wine, the 2016 “Zeitlos” Syrah is an elegantly structured blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Petite Sirah. This wine is big and full-bodied with vibrant, savory flavors of cherry, plum, violets, coffee, and seared-steak meatiness. It is nicely balanced by gripping tannins and fresh acidity. The name, “Zeitlos,” is German for ageless, and it perfectly sums up Markus’ winemaking style. While this wine is fruit-driven and balanced and can be enjoyed young, it can also age for a decade or more and continue to evolve and still be absolutely elegant.
