2006 Alder Springs Syrah

Mendocino County

Top 100 Wines of the Year winner, our 2006 Alder Springs Syrah from Mendocino County exhibits a strong purple color in the glass and integrated dark berry fruit and a hint of oak on the nose. Strong dark cherry and currant flavors on the palate from the Clone 174 planted in the Emerald Pool block of the vineyard dive deeper into the mid-palate to a darker black fruit on the finish with a hint of lingering mocca on a long 30+ second finish. Cellar this wine for 1-2 years and enjoy it over the next 7-8 years.
