Bell Wine Cellars Syrah Yountville Massa Ranch 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Canterbury Vineyard is situated at the 2000-foot elevation in Calaveras County in the Sierra Foothills. Uniquely situated on a peninsula surrounded on three sides by the large New Mellones Dam this 4-acre vineyard enjoys a microclimate with warm sunny days no fog and moderated by cool afternoon breezes off the dam. Well-drained soils with a shallow layer of schist restrict root growth resulting in vines yielding intensely flavored fruit. This 100% Syrah is aged in barrel for eighteen months and given an additional 3 - 6 months bottle age before release.

Our 2007 Syrah exhibits wonderful varietal character.Deep ruby in color with spicy, peppery fruit aromas, thewine has good acidity, with a rich, luscious mouthfeel andsoft, elegant tannins. The oak flavors are in balance withthe fruit acidity and fruit flavor to yield an appealing wine,bright on the palate, with great depth and concentration.Often described by our guests as 'yummy,' this deliciouswine is a nice alternative for those seeking a rich, round,well-balanced yet softer style wine. A great companion tofood, this wine will continue to mature gracefully for manyyears. Richly flavored and with great concentration, thiswine illustrates the great potential of the CanterburyVineyard.
