Middle Ridge Winery Syrah Temecula Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Middle Ridge 2006 Syrah shows off exactly what happens when you make a wine using choice fruit - you get a full-bodied wine with luscious layers of aromas and a long, smooth finish. Rich fragrances of blackberry, black cherries and plum. You will also find hints black pepper and tobacco. Aged in small French oak barrels for 19 months. This wine is a pure delight with or without a meal. Winemaker Chris enjoys it in front of the fireplace on a snow-bound Idyllwild night. It is the perfect accompaniment to a wide variety of foods, including red meat dishes, hearty cheeses, and Italian dishes with tomato sauce.

A Winery Born in the Pines When winemaker Chris Johnston envisioned starting a boutique winery, he was away from the hassles of everyday city life amid the tall pines and sweet smelling cedars of the popular artist community of Idyllwild, California. The friendliness of the small town inspired Chris to bring people together through the enjoyment of handcrafted, artisan Idyllwild wine. He traveled to vineyards all over California in search of the perfect grapes for Middle Ridge Winery. Today, the wine is made in Temecula, and the original Innovation Lab in Idyllwild continues to be the source of new ideas. A down-to-earth approach to wine and the people who enjoy it makes Middle Ridge wine the perfect match for every conversation. Read less

This is one of my favorite wines. It is full of body and flavor. Just the other day I was eating chocolate and drinking Middle Ridge Syrah and I thought I was in heaven.
