Syrahs have a bad reputation for being a simple, two dimensional wine with great color and aggressive tannins, but not this Syrah.
Mendocino County, California
Varietal: 100% Syrah
Opulent and deep purple in color with intriguing aromas of wild flowers, grilled red meat and blueberry. Even acidity adds expression to this rich multi-structured wine. Syrahs have a bad reputation for being a simple, two dimensional wine with great color and aggressive tannins, but not this Syrah. Flavors of polished dark fruits and chocolate round out a delicious lingering finish. The wine exhibits excellent varietal characteristics. 50% in stainless tanks; 50% in barrels for 13 months. 8% new French oak medium toasted, the remainder in neutral French and American barrels.
Like many of our wines we are not allowed to disclose the specific vineyard/winery where the grapes were grown. In order for us to be able to deliver this kind of sub appellation quality at steep discounts, we must often sign non disclosure agreements with the vineyards. * This 2015 Mendocino County Syrah came from the same vineyard as our award winning 2013 Mendocino Syrah & 2014 Mendocino Syrah. It was gathered from a single vineyard in the Redwood Valley area just north of Ukiah, California. We found this Syrah did not need any blending of other wines.
