Mordazini 2006 Vintage – Syrah — 2 Comments

  1. Miracle of Miracles!!!

    After racking the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon today, I tasted this vintage to see how it’s coming. OH MY GOODNESS!!! It’s finally losing the bitterness, and picking up a peppery flavor, much like a good Zinfandel. The color is dark and rich line a Zin too. I am so excited about the progress it’s making, and happy I decided to leave it in the barrel another year.

    I also decided that since the barrels are so old (already used 4 or 5 years) that I would add some oak staves to the wine. they are American oak, and have a medium toast. They are 14″ long and I put 2 on a hook attached to the bung with a zip tie.

    I believe this one is going to turn out a lot better than I had thought at first. Like Jim keeps telling me “have patience”.

    This wine making experience takes years, so one has to have a lot of patience from vine to bottle.

Please let me know what you think!
