Winemaker's Notes:

The '07 Syrah grapes are from the Dry Creek Valley, 50% from the Del Carlo Vineyard, and 50% from the Russian River Dunn's Denn Vineyard. The flavors of the 2007 syrah are blackberry with a deep, full bodied licorice texture in its tannins. Aged in Hungarian puncheons (a double barrel that slows down the aging process, which allows for subtleties to emerge).

As far as aging, this wine is a fortress and will easily age for 20 years yet. It is drinkable now.

My Notes:

About Mietz Cellars:

Mietz Cellars is a small winery located at 602 Limerick Lane just south of Healdsburg, California. It's owned and run by Keith and Nancy Mietz, and their son Andrew has recently joined the business.

Their approach to wine making lies in the axiom, "Wines are made in the vineyard." We put this axiom to practice when we purchased an old, neglected vineyard in 1978. In working with the old vines we were able to absorb the nature of the terroir.
