Mayo Family Wines Syrah Shiraz Napa Valley Page/Nord Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The color of this ripe Syrah seems concentrated, shinning redish blue off the edge. Immediately the aromas hint at the extreme ripeness of the wine. It is a swirling mix of aromas including pomegranate, leather, fresh berries, pepper and vanilla. The structure and backbone of the wine is gripping on the palate. And once it gets a hold of you, watch out. Red currant, black fig, ripe plum, spice and hints of tea on the edge make this a fascinating, even cerebral wine. We believe the wine's structure and intensity will allow it to age gracefully for five to ten years. The Page-Nord Vineyard is located in the lower Napa Valley in northern Yountville near the border of the Stag's Leap appellation and planted exclusively to the Hermitage clone. Here the climate is a bit cooler than up-valley. The vineyard is meticulously maintained by the Nord family who has farmed grapes in the Napa Valley for more than 20 years. The vineyard delivers medium-sized berries that seem to come fully ripe all at exactly the same time.
