Sawbuck, 2016 Syrah, YOLO County California

It has been suggested that the word sawbuck came to mean a 10-dollar bill because the X-shaped ends of a sawbuck look like the Roman numeral for 10. This explanation is problematic because earliest known use of sawbuck in print, from 1850, refers to a 10-dollar bill, not a sawhorse.

This is a Deep red wine with nice heavy, even legs. 

Nose very robust with earthy mushrooms and leather with a little pepper and spice. Notes of black cherries and vanilla. 

The tannins are smooth and quite well balanced, not overwhelming. Black cherry, spice and vanilla round out the flavors of this wine. So very interesting and smooth. The spice and pepper and to an amazing finish. 

This is definitely an amazing wine. Great overall experience!
