This is the fourth vintage of Eponymous Syrah. The grapes come from a relatively young vineyard east of the town of Napa, on Monticello Road. After picking, hand-harvested fruit was fermented with utmost care and the resulting wine was aged 9 months in 30% new oak (50% French and 50% American).
Exhibiting an attractive deep purple, garnet color, this wine boasts of well-integrated aromas that hint of boysenberry, rosemary, and a touch of a smoky, oven roasted meat dripping character that I always look for in a good Syrah. The flavors follow nicely to the palate with added cranberry and ripe pomegranate notes. This full-bodied wine is well balanced with good weight and grip that glides evenly across the palate finishing with pleasing flavors that linger.
Serve at room temperature with red meats, lamb, cheeses.
