User Reviews for Silvestri Vineyards Syrah Carmel Valley Estate

Winemaker's Notes:

The Syrah is cold soaked before fermentation in small tanks. Although it’s maceration is similar to the Pinot Noir’s there is greater care taken not to over-extract this intense grape. A generous use of aeration and rack and return pumpovers helps to bring out the smooth side of this varietal. This wine goes directly to one half-new and one-year-old barrels after pressing. There it ages for 14 to 18 months, depending on the vintage, before being bottled.

Tasting Notes:

Deep savory aromas are backed up by red and black fruits. Think of the mouthwatering smell of roasting turkey along with cranberry sauce and currants. The mouthfeel is smooth and full with great density and persistence. Once again there are both savory, earthy and fruit elements. As this comes together with supporting acidity in the long detailed finish.
