Verveine Cellars Syrah Sunhawk Mendocino 2015
Syrah | US
Last year we were introduced to Sara and Tyler Burt and their Verveine brand, and we never looked back. One taste will convince you. We just got another batch at the same price…so NOW is the time to restock or try it for the first time – prepare to be VERY happy!
Sara & Tyler make organic and biodynamic wines from their biodynamic estate in Hopland, CA. In the winery, they use simple, traditional techniques to ensure that the wines are meaningful and true to the estate farm where they were grown. It’s a true “the wine is made in the vineyard” approach, and as far as we can taste, they are CRUSHING it! This is a simply astounding value that you really need to taste to believe! Throw this into a blind tasting of top Northern Rhones and prepare for your wine friend's jaws to hit the floor. They never have to know you paid drastically less than the rest of world!
At a ridiculous $15 price, this wine is percolating with wild brambly blackberry, white pepper, new polished leather, and black currants...pure, clean and mouthfilling with good balance. Drinking perfectly right now! In fact, best if you make a plate of Shaking Beef from the much-loved Slanted Door in SF for the full effect! FIFTEEN dollars! Wow! While it lasts!
