2012 Myriad Cellars Syrah
Las Madres Vineyard Esther Block, Carneros, Sonoma Valley

Twenty Twelve's early bud break and a mild to warm growing season set the stage for an amazing vintage for Las Madres.  Normal yields allowed us to hang a perfect set of fruit to match the growing year. 2012 Myriad Cellars Syrah Las Madres Vineyard Esther Block

Dark crimson in color to the rim leads to aromas of ripe cherries, plums, tapenade, ripe herbs and hints of orange rind.  The mid palate is where this wine really shines.  Its medium to full bodied structure has incredible depth and purity and flows into a long finish that combines perfectly with integrated and ripe tannins.  True to its cool climate roots, this wine shows that California is capable of producing a wine of such beauty and depth without being heavy handed or overbearing.

Please give this wine a short decant, as it will provide ample integration of the young components.  Look for it to reach a peak drinking window in 5-7 years.  This is just a gorgeous wine from Las Madres which is starting to hit its stride as it matures.
