DRAGONETTE 2011 SYRAH "SEVEN" CENTRAL COAST 750mL

While the guys at Dragonette are known for their zippy and complex Sauvignon Blanc, they've got a pretty good hand on Syrahs, too! This wine is a Rhone blend of Syrah, Grenache & Mourvedre. It comes from Seven spectacular vineyards and the hands of Seven people. Predominantly from Syrah, the Seventh most widely planted grape in the world, it is more than just Syrah, it represents an apogee of their goals as winemakers; they help tend the finest vineyards and hand pick the best barrels for the wine, they pour all their knowledge and labor into its elevage, and they patiently wait for two years until the wine was perfectly ready for bottling.

Explosive aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry and grape jam, framed by deeply pitched, higher toned notes of asphalt, leather, and tar with fresh and dried herbal notes and pine, along with animal scents of smoked and dried meats and rare beef. In the mouth the wine is medium to full bodied, with great concentration and length, demonstrating fruit notes of blueberries, blackberries, boysenberries, ripe plums an hints of cherry, along with tar and a mélange of dried herbs. The wine is lifted by a solid spine of brisk acids and large scaled fruit and wood spiced tannins, giving a sensation of lightness and energy. The wine will age effortlessly for several years, but is already a natural fit for both grilled and braised meats, hearty pasta (mushrooms/cream/salty Parmesan cheese) and stews.
