This is Merryvale’s fourth harvest from this vineyard, and the wine has the distinctive varietal characteristics that are unique to Syrah including dark color, peppery fruit and rich mouthfeel.
This wine comes from the Page-Nord Vineyard in Yountville. The vineyard has been used by several small producers to make vineyard-designated Syrahs. The wines are often quite different depending on which winery made it.
