2013 Baxter Syrah Valenti Vineyard Mendocino Ridge
Not long ago, David was at the Anderson Valley Winegrowers event. On a tip from a loyal customer, he visited Baxter Wines. The word on the street was that the Baxters (Phillip L and Phillip T.G.) were making wonderful wine.
It is always nice when a tip turns out to be a good one. David tracked down the distributor to see about bringing the wine to SoCal. The Baxters are making wines that are excellent, get super scores, and are fairly priced.
“This is a fresh and surprising Syrah indicative of its cool-climate terroir. On the nose this wine shows overtones of white pepper lifted by fresh peach and delicate floral notes. On the palate summer fruits meld with spice, adding traditional Syrah-like depth and roundness. Wild-plum, a hint of caramel, fresh cherry and forest floor are matched with dusty tannins. Vibrant minerality and a distinct terroir combine to give a long finish to this intriguing and elegant wine.Blend: 94% Syrah, 6% Viognier.”
