2008 Myriad Cellars Syrah
Esther Block, Carneros, Sonoma

48 cases produced.

In 2008, we took the Las Madres Vineyard to a new level of detail by hand harvesting each vineyard block separately to exemplify Mother Nature’s nuances. 2008 Myriad Cellars Syrah Las Madres Esther BlockChosen for its precociousness, our clone 174 ‘Esther block’ yields a wine of elegant power and intensity that glows with the contemporary ripeness of the vintage. Texture & vibrancy immediately emanate from the glass followed by a beautiful arc of flavor. Wild black raspberry, tobacco leaf, Asian spice & meaty undertones envelop your palate. A high toned pitch of Bing cherry adds brightness to the core of this wine & an underlying energy seems to drive the gentle but persistent finish. Our favorite Las Madres Syrah to date.

Ready to drink now - yet suited to a year or two in the cellar to bring out further complexities.
