Longboard Vineyards Syrah Russian River Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 vintage in the Russian River Valley started relatively late, we received our first grapes on the last day of September. Early summer was relatively cool, allowing the grapes to mature slowly on the vine and develop lenghty flavors. This wine was made from a selection of 100% Russian River Valley Syrah grapes sourced from four vineyards in the middle and upper reach of the appellation.The grapes were destemmed and crushed at the winery, cold-soaked for two days and then fermented in open-top tanks. Our winemaking is light-handed, relying more on choosing the right moment to harvest the fruit than on excessive manipulation at the winery. As with all the wines of Longboard, the point of this wine is to strike a balance of components that delivers a complex and layered experience that is true to the variety and the growing season. The 2005 RRV Syrah delivers a medley of dark berry aromas and flavors that is restrained by some earthy, mushroom, fennel notes. The acidity, tannin structure and fruitiness are counter balanced to deliver a long after taste with coffee bean notes and ensure the wine will age gracefully in the following years.

Try balance, harmony and nature for starters. Surfing is part sport, part meditation and all working within, rather than against, nature. Winemaking? Pretty similar approach. Both surfers and winemakers reach the summit of their respective crafts when they attain an understanding of, and a respect for, the environment in which they work (and play). Adapting to their surroundings, they achieve peak performance, on the waves and in the vineyards.

Rich smoldering aromas of cherry, blueberry, and paprika. Mild tannin, Great BBQ wine!
