Food Pairings for Hdv Syrah
A mélange of characteristics develop from our four clonal selections. Half of the grapes were fermented in open top fermenters, imparting elegance, floral notes and balance to the wine. The other half were fermented in closed top fermenters providing syrah's distinctive roasted coffee bean character and a strong structure to the wine. The components were then blended and barrel aged in French oak for 11 months. The wine was bottled without filtration.
In an elegant Northern Rhône style, the wine shows a seductive and tender texture, with a vibrant core of blackberry and game as well as exotic spices, which lead to a long, floral finish. The 2004 HdV Syrah should continue to improve for another five to ten years. Serve around 64°F and enjoy with venison, a rack of lamb, prime ribs, or a barbecued salmon.
Aged 11 months in French Oak.
