2005 Jade Mountain Syrah
Lake County

The grapes for the 2005 Jade Mountain Syrah Snows Lake Vineyard were hand harvested in the early morning, crushed and destemmed. After a four-day maceration in stainless steel tanks, with daily pumpovers to extract aromas and flavors, it was racked to mostly French oak barrels and aged for 10 months to allow the flavors to integrate and evolve. It was filtered before bottling.Our Syrah opens to rich aromas of smoky wild cherry with a lovely mountain-fruit essence. On the palate, it is gentle, rich and spicy, with flavors of vanilla cream mingled with orange sherbet, black licorice and wild cherry. This very approachable wine is quite well-balanced for its age. A natural with grilled lamb chops, it also stands up wonderfully to flavorful, spicy meat dishes such as marinated skirt steak or peppery beef daube.
