Margerum Syrah Santa Ynez Valley Black Oak Vineyard 2006
2006 Margerum Syrah Black Oak Vineyard200 six packs producedHere is where the questions of what is right? and what will sell? come into play. Do I want my children to open this bottle in ten years as young adults and think I was a great wine winemaker? Or, should I pick excessively ripe fruit and make a wine that is more immediately drinkable. I choose to impress my children duh! This wine is young and powerful. It really needs to age. All clone 877, 21 day fermentation; my cold soak. Pressed slightly sweet directly into barrels to finish primary fermentation and ML in barrel.
