2007 Series Forte Syrah
Our 2007 Forte Syrah wine is 100% Syrah made in the tradition of wines that originated in the Douro Valley, Portugal. On the palate, flavors of wild blueberries and huckleberries give way to darker flavors of plum, blackberries and cassis followed by a long sumptuous finish of chocolate and black fruits. After making less than 30 bottles of Forte for several years, a close friend convinced me to make enough to share starting with the 2005 vintage. Grapes for Forte enjoyed extended hang time on the vines concentrating the sugars and flavors resulting in an amazing after dinner treat.
