Lattanzio Syrah Sonoma Coast Fedrick Ranch 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep, dark purple color. Aromas and flavors of black pepper, tar, crushed blackberries, blueberries, and bittersweet chocolate. In the mouth, this wine is medium bodied with a core of juicy acidity. It finishes long with fine, dusty tannins. This is our first release of this wine. Unfortunately, we were only able to produce 100 cases in 2006. Boy, we wished we had more of it, as we are quite pleased with how it turned out. It's got a lot of the qualities that I find in the Northern Rhone wines I enjoy so much. Gaminess, earthiness and minerality balanced with some dark fruit flavors. I love the acidity in this wine too. It keeps it bright and lively, making it a great food wine. Enjoy with hearty beef, lamb and game dishes.

Great wine is made in the vineyard. This is our core belief; it guides us in the day to day crafting of our wines. With our wines, we strive to showcase the source vineyard, not our winemaking skills. Our objective is to seek out a handful of unique, cool climate vineyards on the West coast and hand craft small quantities of wine from those vineyards. The vineyards we work with must be meticulously maintained, dedicated to sustainable farming, naturally low yielding and possess that "sense of place". Only the right combination of geographical location, soil, aspect, varietal/clone selection and sustainable farming practices makes a vineyard suitable for our program. At Lattanzio Wines, we believe it is the winemaker's job to take perfectly ripe fruit and gently coax the complex flavors and aromas into the bottle. To that end, our wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts, are subject to minimal handling, aged in small percentages of new French oak, and bottled without fining or filtration. Excessive manipulation in the winery only takes away from the ultimate expression of the source vineyard and the resultant wine's inherent personality. Read less

Opaque purple. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet of black raspberry, blueberry, mocha and smoky herbs. Lush, creamy, sweet dark berry preserve flavors are framed by silky tannins and lifted by zesty minerality.
