Bottle Notes, Syrah

2004 La Sirena Syrah Napa Valley – Bottle Notes

La Sirena Winery was founded by Heidi Barrett in 1994. Heidi was making a Sangiovese for another client and when they backed out of the project Heidi bought the grapes and set out on her own. In addition to La Sirena Heidi makes wine for a multitude of wineries including Lamborn and Paradigm. Heidi is married to Bo Barrett of Chateau Montelena fame.

Purple in color. 15.5% ABV. Amazing nose of black fruits, leather and spearmint. Medium body with mouth watering acidity. Plush and mouth coating with well aged fruits. Black cherry, blackberry, game and coffee on the palate. Exceptional length on the finish. Delicious Syrah that is showing well at sixteen years of age. What a treat. Best over the next year of so.

My rating: 93 points.

La Sirena makes a variety of wines that are available on the winery website and via their mailing list.
