Tasting Notes

Flirting with perfection, the 2007 Syrah Richard’s Vineyard (100% Syrah and 100% whole clusters aged 31 months in French barrels of which 75% are new) is a staggering effort. This Cote Rotie-like (it is no surprise that one of proprietor Joe Donelan’s favorite wines is Rene Rostaing’s Cote Rotie Cote Blonde) effort displays remarkable floral/lavender characteristics (these rocky soils were once used for a lavender farm) along with a dense purple color and an awesome bouquet of spring flowers, blueberries, blackberries and white chocolate.

Provenance

This prestigious collection comes to IronGate.Wine from a revered connoisseur and long-time wine collector. Lover of US wines, he began collecting as soon as he realized he could ship his wines back to his home in Canada. This was not done without struggle, and as the quantity of bottles allowed to be imported back to Canada were limited, it was time to find a safe haven for his ever-growing assembly of fine wine.
