Weisinger Family Winery 2012 Meadowlark Vineyard Syrah, Rogue Valley , $26

By on February 13, 2016

weisinger-family-winery-meadowlark-vineyard-syrah-2012-label1One of Oregon’s loftiest vineyards at 2,100 feet elevation was established by Ashland art community supporters Bryant and Baiba Calhoun with Rich and Pat Glietsman, and it’s been a source of Rhône varities to area winemakers for more than a decade. In the hands of Ashland’s second-generation winemaker Eric Weisinger, this Syrah leads with aromas of blackberry syrup, plum, black currant and minty chocolate chip. It’s a dark and bold drink of boysenberry and pomegranate, framed by a combination of solid tannins and juicy acidity that provides food-friendly length now with an age-worthy structure.
