2013 Syrah Reserve

2013 Syrah Reserve

$53.00

Wine Club Price: $47.70

This single vineyard Syrah displays intense aromas of black cherry and boysenberries, with a luscious palate of savory notes hinting at tobacco and black pepper.

Our Moody Vineyard Syrah Reserve has all the qualities that wines from the beautiful Southern Rhone Valley have. Very fun and complex layers of classic blackberry, pepper spice and anise play on the nose alongside earthy notes of forest floor, and nuances of mulling spice. The Syrah Reserve is a fascinating wine as it morphs and presents new flavors and sensations every 15 minutes after it has been decanted. A favorite winery pairing, stemming from a childhood favorite recipe from Sue is Molasses Marinated Flank Steak with Rosemary Roasted Potatoes. With a pH of 3.9 and a TA of 6.9 it is ready to drink now and for at least five years.

Our 2013 Reserve Syrah comes from the Moody Vineyard at the mouth of the Deschutes River in the Columbia Gorge. This incredible site is just about 1000 feet above the Columbia River on the east bank of the Deschutes River where the two rivers join. Owned and operated by Lori and John Williams; they diligently cleared the site and drilled a well through 900 feet of sand and pea gravel – fantastic lean soil conditions for flavorful grapes. Luckily, we have nearly exclusive access to Moody Vineyard and take almost every berry because it produces some of the most fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Zinfandel and Syrah truly reflecting the distinct nuances and complexities of the Columbia Gorge Region. It was a late harvest on October 24th 2013 to ensure that we developed the fullest flavor potential the vineyard held. We aged the wine in neutral oak barrels for 24 months and in October 2015, a very limited 75 cases was bottled.
