French Laundry’s Syrah Favorite

Site is the new venture from  Jeremy Weintraub (longtime Seavey winemaker).  He sources from the best “Sites” in California.  This latest Syrah is just a good example.  The 2015 Site is sourced from the Bien Nacido Vineyard.  Bien Nacido Vineyard would be considered “Grand Cru” if they were located in France.
Site’s list of accolades is quite impressive as well: “Top Grand Cru Vineyards in California by Wine Spectator ~ Top Five California Vineyards by Wall Street Journal ~ Top 25 Vineyards in the World by Wine & Spirits ~ California’s Best Single Vineyards by Wine Enthusiast ~ Top 5 Vineyards You Can Trust by Pinot Report ~ Ten Best Vineyardsby Food & Wine, etc.”

Winemaker Notes: “The 2015 Site Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyards was fermented and aged in a combination of puncheons and hogheads. The wine features a nose of blackberries, blueberries, crushed white peppercorns, cocoa and flowers. The mouth is full-bodied, with ample soft tannin and juicy acidity.”

Robert Parker 95 Points: “Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Syrah Bien Nacido Vineyard has a chocolate covered cherries and violets-scented nose with suggestions of licorice, garrigue and menthol. The palate is rich and full-bodied, chock full of black fruit and spicy goodness and is well-supported by ripe, rounded tannins, finishing with great length and harmony.”
