2006 La Sirena Syrah, Barrett Vineyards
Our signature Syrah from our steep estate vineyard at the foot of Mt. St. Helena. Very dense and layered with true "terrior".It's a beauty from start to finish, rich and elegant with fine balnce.
This Syrah is made from the Barrett Estate vineyard in the Calistoga region of the Napa Valley. The most complex and layered of the three Syrahs, the Barrett Vineyard Syrah is a very limited production from an extremely steep, rocky 2-acre vineyard block. The result is an incredibly elegant and powerful wine with beautiful fruit flavors and notes of minerality and Napa Valley terroir. Truly a special wine with a complexity all its own.

This is the most layered of the three La Sirena Syrahs. It is fully ripe and concentrated. Aromas are of ripe black cherry pie, plum, mineral, earth, and smoked meat. A round mouth feel and flavors of black plum, dried herb, pomegranate, and a hint of minerality leading to a lengthy, juicy finish. The wine shows its Â“terroirÂ” from this tiny 2- acre vineyard block, where the soil is quite rocky, with some steep sections that produce tiny, intensely flavorful grapes. The resulting wine shows the dense, rewarding concentration that comes from farming this delightfully scrappy little vineyard. It is a beauty from start to finish, rich and elegant with fine balance. Truly a special wine.
