2013 Ledge Vineyards Syrah Adams Ranch Vineyard
First time trying any wines from Mark Adams and first tasting at The Vineyard in McLean. Wine was a light purplish red. We do love the nose. Lots of black peppercorn, earthy. Is a little tight and needs time to open up. Moderate tannins and moderate body. Slight minerality in the finish. Very interesting vineyard with sandy soil and is owned by Mark Adams. This wine had its ups and downs. Definite up? The nose, I love the pepper, earthy notes it had going on. Downside? The minerality in the finish. All in all a great wine that needs at least a few years to fully develop and could easily cellar for ten.
