As usual, this Syrah shows refinement and elegance, but this year they are backed up with power and a certain “wildness” that happens in this vineyard in warm years, reminiscent of the 2003 and 2005. It expresses itself mostly in the aroma, with crushed herb, iron and black olive notes.

The heat we experienced in July and August built skin thickness and density, driving flavor and tannin development earlier than usual, and deepened color as well. The affects are clear in this year’s Syrah La Serenne: while it’s typically the softest and most approachable of our three Syrahs, the 2009 La Serenne is a blockbuster. Black red with a vibrant magenta edge, this vintage is “big” in every dimension and will probably live longer than many of the recent La Serenne vintages..

Serve cool, 60-62°F. Best from 2013 through 2020.
