2015 Meyer Family Cellars Syrah Yorkville Highlands

Chances are you know something about the Meyer family, assuming you’ve heard about or consumed a bottle of Silver Oak, the fabulous Cabernet Sauvignon wine created by Justin Meyer. The Meyers sold the Silver Oak label years ago, and started a new winery – Meyer Family Cellars – which produces really good wine for a lot less than the $100-plus that Silver Oak Napa valley commands. One of these is the 2015 Syrah. According to Invino, one of my most-trusted retailers, the 2015 was “aged for 20 months in barrel before release in the fall of 2017. Since then, it has begun to evolve into a densely ripe, yet lively wine that oozes character and enjoyment. Fruit-forward notes of black plums, blueberries and raspberry liqueur are met with hints of pepper, leather, violets and toast. There's a boldness to the palate with just a bit of grit from the minuscule addition of Petite Sirah. Complex and just yummy, this will stand up nicely to anything grilled, smoked and slathered in BBQ sauce.” I got six bottles from Invino for $14 (not a misprint) INCLUDING SHIPPING! If Invino is sold out, at least sign up to get email notices about their newest offers, and then use https://www.wine-searcher.com/ to find the lowest prices online. My reaction to my first sip of this juice? “How can they sell this for $14 including shipping?” My second reaction: “Why didn’t I buy more?”
