2009 Perli Vineyards Syrah
Of our three vineyard designate Syrahs, Perli is clearly the most voluptuous. Grown on the steep hillsides of the remote Mendocino Ridge in the Hog Pen block where we have 2 clones (174 & 877) and enough Viognier planted for 1.5% co-fermentation. With 5 months to rest in bottle the wine is now showing her charms.
Earth, spice, camphor and floral notes like rose petal dance out of the glass. Time will reveal gamey notes with minerality. The palate reveals sweet, dark berry fruit with just a hint of cedar with spicy undertones. The wine finishes with soft, mouth coating tannins and the structured acidity leaves the palate ready for more.
