2008 Alder Springs Syrah

Mendocino County

Our Alder Springs Syrah exhibits the cool climate characteristics that Alder Springs Vineyard can exhibit in certain years. The wine has a purple huge common in high-elevation fruit with dark berry fruit and a hint of herbal notes on the nose. The cherry and white pepper flavors on the palate come from a mixture of the Clone 174 from the Emerald Pool block and Clone 99 from the Ridge block of the vineyard that we share with Arnot-Roberts. Very elegant and multi-layered in the mouth, this cool climate syrah has the depth and structure to enjoy over the next 7-8 years.
