Food Pairings for Large Format Estate Syrah-verna's
Released: 11.21.08Alcohol: 15.2%Note: Special shipping rates apply.. This is 100% Melville estate fruit from our ranch in Los Alamos and is composed of seven different clones: (Clone 1,99, 174, 383, 420 and 877). Farmed and managed by Brent Melville, Ron's eldest son, this vineyard is named in honor of Ron's mother, Verna. Yields were 3.2 lbs./vine (2.9 tons/acre). 75% of the grapes were gently de-stemmed, with 25% remaining as whole-clusters. Tasting notes: Immediately noticeable are heady spice components of dried herb, anise, white pepper, lavender, pumpkin pie and tamari that juxtapose against notes of black cherry, dark tropical fruits and purple beets. Aromas redolent of sweet barbeque, gunpowder and worcestershire sauce play with a floral perfume of honeysucke and wisteria. Texturally, the wine is velvety, savory and streamlined finishing with both gumption and grace.
