Winemaker's Notes

Our Jade Mountain 2004 Napa Valley Syrah is a serious wine with both intensity and character. We included small portions of Viognier, Carignane, and Grenache in the blend, to give the wine a touch of exotic charm and balance. After harvesting the fruit for the 2004 Napa Valley Syrah, we gave it a three to four day cold soak, keeping each lot separate. This was followed by a high temperature fermentation (88°F to 92°F), after which the grapes were allowed to rest on the skins for about 21 days.

This 2004 Syrah shows black cherry and cassis aromas, with hints of toasty wood. Big flavors of chewy coffee and black fruit are followed by a rolling chocolate finish. This intense wine pairs well with game birds, lamb and spicy barbecued ribs.

We sourced the majority of the fruit for the 2004 Napa Valley Syrah from two Napa Valley vineyards. Juliana Vineyard in Pope Valley provided deep, inky-colored and fully ripened fruit. Clarke Vineyard in the southernmost section of Napa in American Canyon supplied grapes with cool climate finesse, black cherry aromas and dense, dark chocolate flavors

"A rich, savory, supple-textured wine, with spicy wild berry amid hints of game meat, sage and herb. Ends with a vivid blueberry flavor that's distinct and captivating."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
