Appellation: Mount Veeder, Napa
Rated 90 points by the Wine Advocate: `Meredith`s Midas touch with Syrah did not abandon her in the challenging 2011 vintage. Perhaps it`s the higher altitude Mt. Veeder AVA that was the key to her success. The dark ruby/plum-colored 2011 Syrah exhibits upfront, forward notes of red and black fruits intermixed with hints of menthol and spring flowers. With good ripeness, medium body, soft tannins and a supple character, it should offer plenty of pleasure over the next 2-3 years.?` -- Robert Parker in Issue #209 of the Wine Advocate.
