After a busy week of dealing with work and life in general, I found myself at home on my day off having to complete some unfinished projects. This was definitely not the way I had planned to spend my time away from work. I had been hoping to get out to a couple of the Livermore Wineries I haven’t visited in a while to try some of the newly released vintages. Alas, this was not to be. With half of my mind on wine and the other half on projects, I decided that a little wine might make the projects more palatable.
Looking through my wine racks, I came across a 2007 Page Mill Syrah that had been laying down for some time. I couldn’t remember when I had purchased this wine or what it had tasted like, but something about the idea of drinking a Syrah really appealed to me at that moment.
What a great choice it was. The wine was delicious. It had that fruity California wine appeal while still being well-balanced. My only complaint was that I did not have a back up case of this wine. The bottle was gone all too quickly.
I checked the Page Mill website to see if they were still listing a Syrah of any vintage in their lineup. Based on what I saw on the site it looks like they are currently out. I will need to stop by the Mill soon to verify this. If anyone has any Page Mill Syrah info please let us know. If you come across a 2007 Page Mill Syrah I would encourage you to snatch it up quickly because it is truly a Gem.
Thanks to Page Mill’s winemaker Dane Stark for making fabulous wines and for his overall support of the Livermore Valley wine region.
