Paul Lato Syrah 'Il Padrino' Bien Nacido Vyd 2021
Our 20th anniversary release of il Padrino is a classic Northern Rhone-like style wine from the best Syrah parcel of Bien Nacido Vineyard. Fresh plums with hints of white pepper jump out of the glass. The wine is medium to full-bodied, powerful, concentrated, but well-structured with refreshing acidity and a very long finish." - Paul Lato

In contrast, the 2021 Syrah Il Padrino Bien Nacido Vineyard is more masculine and feral, with ripe black fruits, cracked black pepper, leather, iron, and spring flowers, and a certain bloody character developing with time in the glass. Medium to full-bodied, it has a similar level of polish but is a touch more concentrated and lengthy on the palate, with ripe, building tannins and awesome length. Drink this spectacular Syrah over the coming 10-12 years.
