Longboard Vineyards Syrah Russian River Valley Dakine Vineyard 2005
DaKine is a Hawaiian Pidgin word that means "the best". Need we say more? This special Syrah is traditionally farmed by hand, producing a true field blend. After harvest, all grapes are crushed then fermented in the same tank with a blend of Zinfandel for spiciness, Malbec for deep berry notes, Petite Syrah for structured tannins, and Carignane and Grenache to bring out earthiness. This is a wine that honors the simple life, and is meant to be shared with closest friends and family. Or, the occasional attractive stranger, of course.
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.
Can't get better thank a nice glass of this at the end of a long day!
