2009 Haynes Vineyard Napa Valley Syrah
This is our fourth vintage of Syrah from the famed
Vineyard from which he have received our pinot
noir since 1975. The vineyard lies just down Coombsville Road from us
and is a centerpiece for the Coombsville District AVA.
Inky dark, still restrained, this Syrah has years to go before it reaches its peak.
To drink now, give it plenty of air before pouring. Decanting is
suggested, since it has lots of "stuff" in it. Definitely a wine for the future.

wine to enjoy by the fire on a cold winter's day or with summer
barbecue outside on the patio. Or heck, during spring after slogging
thru the mud or in the fall as a break from raking leaves. In fact,
anytime as a treat to yourself.

Que sera, sera,
