2008 Hugo Family Cellars "Adamare" Napa Valley Syrah
The 2008 Napa Valley Syrah underwent single berry sorting and was punched down by hand during open top barrel fermentation. While aging in mostly neutral oak barrels the wine developed a perfumed nose with scents of wild herbs, black fruits, roasted meats, and black pepper. We incorporated one 2 year old French oak barrel that provided a subtle touch of caramel and richness to the blend of different syrah clones from this vineyard. The complex flavors of blackberry liqueur, mocha, warm spices and hints of meat unfold on the palate. Having developed its structure and depth the syrah should continue to mature for the next five years. We paired this with lamb sliders with a roasted raspberry chipotle dipping sauce. Delish!
