Lagier Meredith Syrah is a vineyard wine. Our responsibility is to safeguard the wine during its passage from vineyard to bottle and to protect it from too much winemaking. Year after year, our vineyard produces wine that is complex, balanced and consummately integrated. It's whole wine that's much more than the sum of its parts. Rich, dark, smooth and seamless. Our Syrah has been described as having one foot in the Northern Rhône and one foot in Northern California. The flavor is reminiscent of the Northern Rhône with its spice and white pepper and violet aromas, but it has more extract and body. In many red wines, big color usually means big tannin, but (for reasons we may never understand) our wine is not harshly tannic so it drinks well when it is young. Read less

Our vineyard produces a distinctive wine with a consistently recognizable flavor from vintage to vintage. The wine is shaped by the physical characteristics of our mountain site -- the shallow soil, the high elevation, the eastern exposure, and the cool sea breeze on summer afternoons. The shallow, well-drained soil restricts the growth of the vines and produces very small berries with intense color and flavor.

Consistently one of the great Syrahs made in California is Carol Meredith s offering from Mt. Veeder. Lagier Meredith s stunning 2008 Syrah reveals an opaque ruby/purple hue along with a gloriously intense perfume of roasted meats, herbs, barbecue smoke.
