2007 Syrah Dry Creek Valley
This wine is a delicious blend of Ray Teldeschi's vineyard Syrah, Dry Creek Valley (89%), Eaglepoint Ranch Vineyard Grenache (6%), Catie's Corner Vineyard, Russian River Valley (3%) and Eaglepoint Ranch Vineyard Petite Sirah (2%).
The wine is an opaque ruby with slight purple core transitioning to a purple rim. The medium intensity nose has aromas of floral (white), black cherry, black olive, red cherry, strawberry, cracked black pepper and warm spices. The palate has medium+ acidity, medium+ fine-grained tannins, long length with complex, layered flavors matching the aroma plus warm spices on entry, cracked white pepper and pomegranate and on the finish. It is a very pleasant mouth-watering mouth feel just begging to be had with a rich meat-based dish.
