Baron Herzog Syrah 2008 750ml

Baron Herzog Syrah

Deep garnet color with a violet cast, oak barrel aging for 18 months and high quality Edna Valley fruit leads to ripe blackberry, pepper, and toasty spice aromas. A soft, supple entry leads to a fruity-yet-dry medium-full body of blackberry, boysenberry, black pepper, and delicate spice flavors. Finishes with a tangy, yet polished, tannin fade. This vintage was rated 90 points a " Exceptional and awarded a gold medal from the Beverage.

In 1985, the Herzog family decided to expand their winemaking operations to California, where they make wine under two separate labels: Baron Herzog and Herzog Wine Cellars. After twenty years of renting space in various wineries, the family was finally able to build its own state-of-the-art winery just south of Santa Barbara, in the town of Oxnard. Here, under the supervision of head winemaker Joe Hurliman, Herzog Wine Cellars has created a center for high-end contemporarywinemaking in a tradition that dates back nearly six centuries.

The Herzog family trace their winemaking origins back to Philip Herzog, who made wine in Slovakia for the Austro-Hungarian court more than a century ago. Philip’s wines were so appreciated by Emperor Franz-Josef, that the emperor made Philip a baron. The Baron Herzog wines—a line of premium, yet moderately priced California varietals—are named to commemorate the honor.
