Unti Vineyards Syrah Dry Creek Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The complex set of spicy and floral aromas are followed by sweet blueberry and blackberry flavors. While this wine has a lush Dry Creek side to it, the juicy acidity will have you thinking of a St. Joseph that has been lifting weights. It is already drinking nicely, and should continue to do so for 3 to 5 years.

Here is a rich and robust Syrah that sees 14 months in French oak, some of which is new. Mick Unti keeps yields extremely low in the vineyard to ensure that this wine is dense and packed with intense, dark fruit aromas and flavors. Pure, pulpy, and spicy.



The complex set of spicy and floral aromas are followed by sweet blueberry and blackberry flavors. While this wine has a lush Dry Creek side to it, the juicy acidity will have you thinking of a St. Joseph that has been lifting weights. It is already drinking nicely, and should continue to do so for 3 to 5 years.
