Lagier Meredith Syrah Mt. Veeder 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The Lagier Meredith label is dedicated to wines made from estate-grown grapes. Most of our effort is in the vineyard, where we devote considerable time to fine tuning the balance between the leaf canopy and the fruit. Not too much crop, not too little, just the right amount for the best flavors that our site can produce. Our winemaking practices are minimal. No extended maceration. We use only neutral French oak barrels in order to minimize oak flavor. We started out growing only Syrah, but we now also grow Mondeuse, Malbec and Zinfandel. The 2010 Syrah is our 13th vintage of this wine. An exquisite wine, compelling and complex. Floral perfume, a touch of pepper, elegant and balanced. No sharp edges. And it will get even better for many years to come. Aged for 22 months in neutral French oak barrels. 400 cases." -Winery

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
