A perfect wine, the 2009 Syrah Richard’s Family Vineyard is out of this world. About 50% new oak was used in its upbringing, and it was bottled after two years in barrel as opposed to the 36 months of the 2011. Fifty percent whole clusters were used. A stunning bouquet of barbecue smoke, steak tartare, creme de cassis, blackberries, truffle and licorice soars from the glass of this full-bodied wine.
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.
