Below is the November, 2007 Featured Wine for the Wines by Jennifer Cellar Club:



2004 Spencer Roloson

"La Herradura Vineyard"

Syrah

Napa Valley, California

 

2004 Spencer Roloson "La Herradura Vineyard"Spencer Roloson Winery produces outstanding wines from the volcanic California hillsides of the St. Helena and Clear Lake areas.

Sam Spencer and Wendy Roloson came together to create Spencer Roloson, combining Sam’s global winemaking experiences and Wendy’s knowledge of marketing & branding. Focusing on Rhone and Spanish varietals, they specialize in single vineyard estate bottlings of Syrah, Viognier and Tempranillo, with balanced, organic farming and a sensitivity to the vineyards as key goals.

The La Herradura Vineyard is a gem tucked into the lower slopes of Howell Mountain in the Conn Valley. In 1999, this vineyard was planted on family land with Côte Rôtie selections. The soils are thin, gravelly, clay loams on hillside that averages 25% slopes. Yields are naturally very low in such thin and inhospitable soils, producing loose clusters with small berries and very thick skins.

This wine shows tremendous complexity; dense and rich with crushed plum, blackberry, sage and mineral notes supported by sweet and finely grained tannin. The powerful finish is a true 60-second experience.

 

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"Glorious notes of bacon fat, roasted meat, smoke, blackberries, and black currants emerge from the dark ruby/purple-colored 2004 Syrah La Herradura Vineyard. This complex, sexy, lush, opulent, enticing Syrah can be drunk now or cellared for 4-5 years."
