Benziger Syrah North Coast 2006
Our 2006 North Coast Syrah boasts earthy aromas of tobacco and herbs. In the mouth, dark fruit flavors of ripe plum and black raspberry linger on the palate. A long finish leads way to hints of pepper and spice. The 2006 vintage was truly a year won in the vineyard. A record 10-day heat spike in July had growers nervous about sunburn on the ripening grapes. Through meticulous management we tried to avoid leafing, and used the canopy to protect the grapes from direct sun exposure and high temperatures. This technique allowed the grapes to ripen more slowly and produce more concentrated flavors. Overall, this vintage produced excellent quality fruit, despite all the challenges.
