BAXTER SYRAH VALENTI VINEYARD MENDOCINO RIDGE 2013
NVWE Notes: True to its mountain appellation, this is a distinctive Syrah that offers depth, elegance, concentration and staying power. The nose layers notes of blueberry, black fig, blackberry, licorice root, jerked beef, black and white peppercorn, sandalwood, star anise and hints of lavender and violet. All this and more is evident on the palate, where the texture is sleek, but mouth-coating and the finish is ultra-long. That finish is a fruity-spicy-smoky-floral-minerally mirror of the nose, and it’s depth and sweet-nature do much to cover the wines tannins. Certainly a fine match to roast lamb or braised beef short ribs right now, it will be vastly better in another three years and perhaps better still in another four. Blended with 4% Viognier. 150 cases produced.
