Winemaker Notes

White pepper abounds. Toss in a sprinkling of rose petals and this wine expresses our vineyards recurring Syrah theme of spice and flowers. This is what Syrah can offer when it's grown in the right place. A suggestion of savory meatiness at this point, which will certainly increase as the wine ages. 22 months in neutral French oak barrels

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Lagier Meredith's 2012 Syrah from Mount Veeder is terrific. Spicy and meaty, with hints of underbrush, bacon fat/lard, black raspberry and black cherry, as well as blackcurrant fruit with licorice and tar, this is a medium to full-bodied Syrah that this winery excels at year after year. Can be drunk now, or cellared for another 8-10 years.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A dense, muscular Syrah, intensely tannic and chewy, with a tight core of beefy, peppery wild berry, dried herb and savory flavors that are vibrant and compelling. This is very tight and closed, ending with chewy tannins. Best from 2018 through 2028.

Lagier Meredith, California
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.

Mt. Veeder Wine

Napa Valley, California

View all products

Centered at the peak for which it is named, Mount Veeder is Napa’s largest sub-AVA. But even though the entire appellation spreads over 16,000 acres, vineyards cover a mere 1,000. Scattered among Douglas firs and bristlecone pines, Mount Veeder vineyards extend south from the upper elevations of the Mayacamas Mountains—the highest point at 2,400 feet—to the border of the Carneros region. Less than 25 wineries produce wine from Mount Veeder fruit.

Winemaking began early in this appellation. In 1864, Captain Stelham Wing presented the first Mount Veeder wine to the Napa County Fair; it came from today’s Wing Canyon Vineyard. Prohibition, of course, halted winemaking and viticulture wasn’t revitalized until the founding of Mayacamas Vineyards in 1951 and Bernstein Vineyards in 1964.

The Bernstein Vineyards was actually home to the first Petit Verdot in California, planted in 1975. Today most of the Petit Verdot in Napa Valley originates from this vineyard.

Rocky volcanic clay and ancient seabed matter dominate Mount Veeder soils—perfect for Bordeaux varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot enjoy spectacular success. These varieties produce wines rich in brambly blackberry and black cherry fruit with herbal and floral aromatics. Structures are moderate to assertive and wines have great staying power.

Chardonnay from Mount Veeder is lush, full and balanced mineral and fresh citrus flavors.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
