2007 O.G.T. Syrah (Magnums Only)
As many of you know, before Oliver was born we never blended our single-parcel Syrahs. But once we decided to name a wine for him we knew no single parcel would do. The flavor profile of this wine would have to be as imaginative, creative, joyful, and complex as our little boy himself. As always we tasted several different blends before deciding on the right equation for this year’s OGT. In the end we once again chose a 50% Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah, 25% Tierra Alta Vineyard Syrah, and 25% Thompson Vineyard Syrah blend. The Colson brings weight, roundness, and rich, dark stone fruits to the table while the Thompson shines with streaks of earth and dark berries. Beautifully balanced tannins that are soft and grainy in the mouth round out the picture of a Syrah that is age-worthy and should develop beautifully over the next 8 to 12 years.
