This vintage is perhaps the most Northern Rhône-ish that we've ever produced. Bursting with floral perfume and white pepper spice, all resting on a bed of deep dark fruit.
The Lagier Meredith label is dedicated to wines made from estate-grown grapes. Most of our effort is in the vineyard, where we devote considerable time to fine tuning the balance between the leaf canopy and the fruit. Not too much crop, not too little, just the right amount for the best flavors that our site can produce. Our winemaking practices are minimal. No extended maceration. We use only neutral French oak barrels in order to minimize oak flavor. We started out growing only Syrah, but we now also grow Mondeuse, Malbec and Zinfandel.
Aged for 21 months in neutral French oak.
