About Lagier Meredith:
Lagier Meredith makes only Syrah and they use only their own grapes. Their wine owes its character to the place where the grapes are grown. It is truly a vineyard wine. (Which is not to belittle Steve Legier's winemaking ability...he just knows when to intervene and when not to.)
The flavor of the wine is reminiscent of the Northern Rhône in its red berry and white pepper aromas, but it has more extract and body. It has intense flavor and deep color but, unlike some other red wines, where big color usually means big tannin, Lagier Meredith Syrah is not harshly tannic so it drinks well when it is young, but it is also expected to age well.
