Mercenary 2009 Syrah

Sorry mate, this product is temporarily out of stock.

Bold and untamed, our Mercenary 2009 Syrah is a thrill seeker in a bottle! Filled with flavors of blueberries, bing cherries and plums combining with red licorice, mocha and firm, full tannins, our Mercenary Syrah steals the show and takes no prisoners.


TECH NOTES: Our grapes come from Ing Vineyards in south Monterey County, which has a shaley-loam topsoil laced with chalk and limestone. The elevation is about 1,000 feet in the southwest portion of the Santa Lucia mountain range. We used three different clones from the vineyard: Estrella, Syrah Noir and 877. After a 24-hour cold soak, they were fermented to dryness and aged in 20% new French oak.
