2008 Lagier Meredith Mount Veeder Syrah

SKU #1071100 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Consistently one of the great Syrahs made in California is Carol Meredith’s offering from Mt. Veeder. Lagier Meredith’s stunning 2008 Syrah reveals an opaque ruby/purple hue along with a gloriously intense perfume of roasted meats, herbs, barbecue smoke, burning embers, plums and acacia flowers. The wine possesses exceptional intensity, a full-bodied opulence and not a hard edge to be found. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good bright ruby. Perfumed aromas of plum, raspberry, spices, flowers and lead pencil, plus a suggestion of exotic fruits. Supple, shapely and quite dry, with very good intensity but also a pliant texture to its dark berry and pepper flavors. Shows a lovely light touch thanks to a firm acid spine. Finishes with building tannins that reach the front teeth. This should gain in weight with time in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2011)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This savory Syrah runs on foresty spice, a scent of tobacco leaf, green peppercorn and green olive. There's a tart raspberry and candied cherry flavor to add dimension, but it's the spice that drives the flavors and lasts. Carol Meredith and Steve Lagier grow 4.5 acres of Syrah on a ridge of fractured sandstone and shale 1,300 feet up Mount Veeder, where spring frosts and challenges with flowering limited the crop in 2008. Inner quote mark (2/2011)

K&L Notes

The Syrah is planted on fractured shale and sandstone soils at 1300 feet on Mount Veeder. The breezes and elevation and shallow soil produce tiny, intense berries. The vineyard even has views of San Francisco Bay! White pepper and roasted meat aromas undergird the floral and plum notes.
