Mission Trail Vineyards’ 2006 Syrah grapes matured on the vine for longer than usual, leading to darker fruit aromas and flavors, more depth overall and great length on the finish. Reminiscent of Northern Rhône’s famous Côte-Rôtie wines, but with a brighter expression of fruit and terroir, this Syrah was produced from the Bianco Bench Vineyard within the San Lucas appellation of Monterey County.

This Syrah is an excellent portrayal of the big and robust Syrahs this vineyard is capable of. The 2006 Syrah’s nose is full of blackberry and wood smoke aromas with hints of cocoa powder and the mouth is well-integrated with firm tannins and multiple layers of fruit, with plum and coffee notes.
