Mission Briefing

Codename:

Falling in love. Again and again.

Today’s 2009 Peterson Winery Bradford Mountain Dry Creek Valley Syrah is another fantastic offering from one of Agent Red’s favorite wineries, Peterson Winery in California’s beautiful Dry Creek Valley.

Grower Fred Peterson has been growing grapes and making Peterson wines in California for the last quarter century. Fred’s son, Jamie, literally grew up in the winery, shadowing his father and learning the craft from a very young age. Fred, who now focuses on growing, has handed the winemaking over to Jamie who, for the last several vintages, has been crafting one remarkable and delicious Peterson wine after another.

Peterson’s latest Syrah offering is a deep, dark and luscious wine that presents juicy mouthfuls of flavor and heady aromatics - all in a wine that is beautifully balanced and velvet-smooth on the palate.

Syrah fans (and fans of the fabled Bradford Mountain) will take great delight in today’s very highly recommended Peterson Syrah.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Ultra dark and inky with a foreboding and dark crimson core.

Smell:

Dark and richly layered, with deep aromatics. Bold dark fruit of blackberry, smoky cherry, grilled fig, grilled plum and subtle sweet spice.

Taste:

Very elegant and smooth on the palate, with flavors of blackberry, black cherry, boysenberry, black currant and braised mission fig. As the wine breathes, it reveals flavors of subtle leather, soft black pepper and subtle dark tobacco leaf.

Finish:

Ultra long and gradually drying with dark fruit slowly giving way to delightful earthen elements.

Pairing:

Enjoy this wine with a garlic and black pepper rubbed anything! We’ll enjoy ours with a hearty t-bone steak.
