Meyer Family Cellars’ 2017 ‘High Ground’ Syrah comes from the Yorkville Highlands of Mendocino County. Right out of the bottle, the aromas of this wine consist of fragrant blue and black fruits, combined with earthy violet notes that are typical of cool-climate Syrah.

The wine opens on the palate with plum and blackberry flavors that evolve, with aeration, into the classic Syrah flavors of blueberry, bacon fact, and white pepper. With further aeration in the glass, more blue and black fruits emerge, balanced by Yorkville Highland’s signature acidity. The extended barrel age of 26 months has offered an additional layer of tannins that will help the Syrah to age gracefully for many years to come.
