THE REVIEW

People always say that pizza and bagel dough taste better in New York than anywhere else. Why? The water. The same is true for the 2004 Meyers Vineyard Syrah that has an isolated 11 acre lake as its sole source irrigation.
    Tucked in the hills of Napa Valley, the minerals in the water produce a delicious red revealing fantastic depth and nuance. We have never seen such unique flavors from a Napa Valley Syrah as we have from Meyer Vineyards.
    The wine is bursting with fresh and lively dark berry fruit. Earthy, mocha and black cherry flavors are well-focused, turning elegant and supple on the finish. This wine has over six years of bottle age and is incredibly smooth and rich. Versatile yet complex, the wine gets better after each glass.
    You might remember Meyer Vineyards from the delicious Cabernet we featured several months ago; their Napa Valley Syrah is equally compelling. Pair with any grilled meats, spicy dishes, and pizza with your favorite toppings. You can enjoy this delicious red now and over the next five years. This should be your go-to wine for any season!Read More »
