2010 REGUSCI
ESTATE SYRAH

STAGS LEAP DISTRICT, NAPA VALLEY


Retail: $60

Purchase

Notes
Better known in the Rhone Valley, think big Old World style from Hermitage and Cote-Rotie, Syrah has an underground fan club in the Napa Valley.  We have a little over an acre of syrah planted on the Ranch at the base of Angelo’s Vineyard, meaning a well-drained gravelly soil composition, leading to smaller more concentrated fruit. And welcome to the 2010 Regusci Estate Syrah! Young, boisterous aromas of plum and mulberries but with a gamey earthiness, power from the glass. The mouth feel is light and bright, with blackcurrant, kirsch, orange peel and pepper spice. Pan sear a Liberty duck breast and enjoy with a bottle of this 2010 Syrah now or watch the wine intensify with age over the next 10 – 12 years, either way this is a wine that will reward.

2011 REGUSCI
ESTATE SYRAH

STAGS LEAP DISTRICT, NAPA VALLEY


Retail: $60

Purchase

Notes
Shiraz or syrah? It’s the same grape but a slightly different name; Shiraz is the Persian city where the grape originated and the name used by Australian wineries, while syrah is the French name for the same varietal. And who said the wine world embodies confusion? The small block of syrah we have at Regusci leans towards a flavor profile associated with France and the 2011 vintage delivers! A beguiling floral nose with chocolate undertones hints at the leaner vintage that was 2011. As the wine envelopes the palate, blackberries, mocha and a hint of truffle are revealed in soft aromatic layers. The mouth feel is crisp, tart and spicy – it wants to be paired! Think on the rich and gamey side such as wild Rabbit Ragu over pappardelle pasta. With age however, this vintage will mature easily over the next decade or so.
