Miller Wine Works Syrah Napa Valley Sage Canyon Vineyard 2006

Member Review by vin0vin0:

Big, chewy syrah with loads of dark fruit, dried prune, tar and a bit of heat from the alcohol (15.4%). This was an '06 and it was still a bit tight with a slight sharp edge on the tannins.

For me, winemaking is cooking.

For me, winemaking is cooking. This is something I've learned from years of professionally doing both; but, it doesn't get any better than working with the incredible flavors, textures, and aromas of pristine grapes grown in the sun and soil of the California coast. Winemaking is a tremendous challenge of the senses and demands three things from me: focus, focus, focus. I grew up in rural, western New York where simple, fresh, homegrown food was an everyday experience. Our meats, milk, bread, fruit, and veggies were from local farms. Many of my earliest memories are the tastes and smells of my mother's kitchen - bread, Christmas cookies, apple pies, smoked ham, and Thanksgiving turkey. Just picked, juicy, finger-staining huckleberries were hard work, but memorable. When mom canned summer fruit for winter eating, the house would fill with the incredible smells of ripe peaches, tomatoes, strawberries, and pears. Read less

This Syrah, achieves Gary’s objective in a big way. A big wine, from hillside fruit coming from the warmer Sage Canyon region of Napa, it’s got substantial alcohol (15.4%) and lower acidity compared to some of the cooler climate syrah we often drink. Balanced and by no means a fruit bomb, it’s a wine with an admirable sense of balance and really nice complexity. The perfect wine for every robust food served this summer; this is a wine to have pairing fun with. WineryInsider.

The 2005 Miller wine Works Syrah, Sage Canyon vineyard, Napa Valley initially presents you with aromas of fresh violets, which then cede to notes of anise, and finally some tar. On the palate, a firm structure, and ample tannins border the copious integration of ripe blackberries and earthy minerality, while confirming the hints of tar discovered earlier. While somewhat viscous, and reasonably long even now, this wine will continue to evolve for the next three to five years easily.
