The Edna Valley appellation produces very distinctive Syrah grapes that result in wines of both sophistication and elegance. Since the 2002 vintage was cool, this wine has a uniquely distictive Syrah character: white pepper, plum, smoke, and blackberry notes. This wine was carefully aged in new and one year old French oak barrels in order to limit the influence of oak and to allow its complex fruit notes to stand out. These aromas are perfectly aligned with the wine's beautiful structure and soft mouth feel. Herzog Syrah Special Reserve is exquisite now and may be aged, under proper conditions for three to four years past vintage. Savor it with roasts, pasta dishes with meat, or veal piccata. This wine is unfiltered and may form some sediment as it ages.
