2014 Favia Quarzo Syrah Amador
The 2014 Quarzo (100% Syrah) is a powerful, explosive wine. Inky and richly textured, the Quarzo possesses notable personality and class. Judging by these two Rhône wines, Syrah seems a bit better suited to the Favia style than Grenache. There is certainly plenty to like in the Quarzo, a wine that showcases the racier side of Syrah in Amador County.
