2007 La Serenne, Syrah
Once again, the Boushey Vineyard hit the mark. The small-berried Syrah provided enormous strength and color in 2007. And it’s more brooding, dense and jam packed than the past couple years. The nose is full of black and blue berries, smoke, spice, roasted meat. It enters plush, silky and thick, expanding with blackberry and a bit of this vineyard’s “sauvage” character.
We’ve been farming the same block of Syrah in Dick Boushey’s Vineyard for 8 years now, and have gotten to know this turf well. But 2007 is a slight anomaly: it’s firmer and more brooding than most years, dense and concentrated. Yet through it all it maintains its typical seamless texture and lift.
