Syrage defines the essence of three varieties but one wine and the best of Hermitage and Meritage. The Mara Wine Group created Syrage Lot 7 to go beyond the one grape/one wine philosophy. This allows our winemaking staff the latitude to build wines of balance to meet the discriminating consumer's desires. Syrah is our pedigree, contributing balance with 18 months of oak aging from our vineyards in the Sierra Foothills. Our Petite Sirah from the Central Coast (Paso Robles) fills the mouth with fruit and demands you savor before swallowing. By using the Bordeaux variety, Cabernet Sauvignon, also from the Central Coast, we added color and structure. Also, 18 months in small French barrels. While the label says California, it is the best of California's regions. These areas are renowned for their Rhone varietals and early, ripe, intense, balanced Bordeaux reds which have attracted collectors worldwide. Our 2008 Syrage exhibits raspberry aromas with a touch of ginger and hints of toffee. The wine is polished with a soft and wonderful hint of spice. As always, it compliments grilled beef dishes as well as saucy sea food and fowl.
