"Loads of green peppercorns, juniper, dried violets and charcoal show on the nose of this extremely cool-climate Syrah. That pepper spice powers the palate, where thyme, forest moss and firm tannins frame background boysenberry flavors." -Wine Enthusiast The Vineyard: During the harvest of 2016 I broke with my tradition of gathering grapes from coastal SF Bay vineyards and did a midnight run in a rented refrigerated van all the way down to the Santa Maria Valley (just north of Santa Barbara). One of my close friends from UCDavis and now the winemaker at Dierberg Star Lane Vineyards promised the Syrah grapes would make a special wine. Winemaking: 100% whole cluster fermentation. Punch downs twice per day and 15 days on the skins. The wine was aged in once-used French oak barrels for fifteen months and bottled with no filtration. Technical Data: 53 cases produced Release date: March, 2018 Alcohol: 13.9% Ageing: 15 months in once-used French oak barrels Food Pairing: My favorite pairing for cool climate Syrah like the Dierberg is a juicy burger with BBQ sauce, bacon and carmelized onions. It also goes great with roasted and grilled meat, southern-style BBQ and cassoulet.
