- Shane Syrah Valenti Ranch Anderson Valley 2011 Product #28129 (In Stock)
This is the final vintage for Shane from this great Syrah vineyard, and he's going out with a bang. As he says, this is a "Rhone tribute" wine, full of meaty, smoky, mineral complexity. 100% whole clusters, no new wood, 1000% delight.
"Aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille, bitter chocolate and violet, with a peppery topnote. Supple and deeply pitched but with good energy and floral lift to its dark berry and licorice flavors. Sweet and tactile syrah, with silky, building tannins and noteworthy persistence. Still a baby; I'd give this wine at least another three years of rest."International Wine Cellar 92 points
