Syrah, Mendocino

Syrah, Mendocino Wine Details

Description: Big and Bold this Syrah has concentrated aromas and flavors of blackberry and licorice. Layered with pepper and smoke. A lush wine that pairs well with lamb, steak and ribs. The fruit from Ladi's vineyard never ceases to amaze us with the rich dense colors and flavors. Ladi is just a fantastic grower. We cold soaked this wine for 4 days and then let it sit on the skins after fermentation for an additional 3 days and this just enhanced the color and the textures of this wine. 18 months in mostly 2-3 year old French oak barrels, we did not want to add a lot of oak for fear of masking the great fruit.
