Olson Ogden Syrah Dry Creek Valley Unti Vineyard 2006

External Review by Fame Wine and Tobacco:

Aromas of smoke, blueberry, blackberry, mineral and cedar. Intense and full-bodied, with crisp, chewy tannins, yet the concentrated flavors push through. The color is a deep black cherry. In the nose there are hints of spice, leather, violets, pepper and a touch of smoke. This wine is full bodied with excellent balance, great structure and firm tannins. There is great complexity and layers of flavor followed by a long, lingering finish. This wine will really show its best in a few years. Try to cellar it for 3 to 10 years, your patience will be rewarded.

Tim Olson has been a winemaker in Northern California for more than 21 years. For six years Olson served as winemaker for Tarius Wines in Santa Rosa, CA. With a focus on vineyard designated Pinot Noirs and Zinfandels, Tarius Vineyards produced 1500 cases a year and was distributed in 12 states and three foreign markets. Olson’s wines have garnered numerous awards including “Best of Show” at the California State Fair and numerous gold medals in other competitions. His wines scored well in national wine publication tastings including Wine Spectator, Wine and Spirits, Wine Enthusiast and Connoisseurs Guide To California Wine, among others. Prior to Tarius Wines, Olson spent three years at French cooperage Tonnellerie Nadalie in Calistoga, CA. There he served as director of enology, managing experiments on cooperage variables in addition to his work in wine sales and marketing activities. His research culminated in organized wine tastings involving nearly 300 winemakers in which he gathered a wealth of statistical data later published in Practical Wine & Vineyard magazine. While at Tonnellerie Nadalie, Olson learned all aspects of forest selection, wood curing and barrel production. His work allowed him to visit over 300 wineries and taste and critique literally thousands of barrel samples. Before joining Tonnellerie Nadalie in 1995, Olson’s winemaking experience included work at Acacia Winery, Caymus Vineyards and Rosenblum Cellars. He also spent a couple years in the lab as Enologist for St. Supery Winery. Read less
