Notes from the Winemaker:
The Barrett Vineyard Syrah comes from our own tiny little 2 acre vineyard at the foot of Mount St. Helena. This is an extremely steep and rocky site and produces an incredibly layered and complex wine. I have been a fan of Syrah and Rhone wines for many years and we have been making Syrah at La Sirena since 2000. I make Syrah from both Napa Valley and Santa Ynez grapes as well as our estate Barrett Vineyards. I find the fruit to be quite distinct by vineyard so I decided to bottle them separately to show off their individual characteristics. This variety can make wonderful wine in a range of growing regions, soil types, and climates. It is a pleasure to work with, fun to make, and even better… it simply makes delicious wine!

Tasting Notes:
"The 2007 is a highly touted vintage for good reason. It is fully ripe and concentrated. The wine has very deep ruby red color with aromas of ripe black plums, pomegranate, mineral, spice, and pepper. More Cab-like than past vintages. Flavors match the aromas but with textural chewy tannins in the mid-palate. This is quite a hearty big red that is begging for grilled meats, steak, venison, duck, spicy sausage, or rich pastas or lasagna. Flavors persist with lightly dusty tannins in the finish."
- Heidi Peterson Barrett, Winemaker/Owner, La Sirena


Ratings & Reviews

92+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2007 Syrah Barrett Vineyard is beautiful. This vintage seems especially well suited to the site and the style Heidi Barrett is going for. Layers of dark red fruit, smoke, licorice and tobacco flow from this generous, textured red. Floral notes are woven throughout, adding an element of lift and complexity. " - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2011)
