Wente Vineyards Syrah Livermore Valley Nth Degree 2004
Winemaking: Fermentation started in stainless steel tanks and then, at 5 Brix, the wine was lightly pressed into 60-gallon oak barrels, where primary fermentation finished at a cooler temperature. The wine was then racked off its fermentation lees and re-barreled where malolactic fermentation was completed. Aging: Portions of the blend were aged in barrels for different lengths of time, from at least 16 months to not more than 21 months.

Showing a vibrant purple color, this Syrah has rich aromas of earth, rose petals, chocolate, and tobacco that continue in the mouth with mocha, toasted oak, leather, and concentrated berry flavors. Forward yet well structured tannins match with the toasted oak, contributing to a wine that is full-bodied with a lingering fruit finish..
