2011 Lagier Meredith Syrah

Mt. Veeder more

7/2/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 91 points

The nose was very pretty and floral, showing dark berries and spice with crushed stone, and violets. On the palate, it entered rich and brooding, yet quickly livened up with notes of tart berry and herbs. Notes of pepper and spice with berry concentrate lingered long through the finish.

7/2/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 93 points

The nose showed masses of ripe black fruits, spiced berry, violette floral tones and a hint of wild herbs. On the palate, it displayed rich textures with saturating dark fruits, citrus and spice. The senses seemed to be coated in sappy black fruit throughout the finish, yet still with a sensation of balance as inner floral tones and spice lingering long.

The color was an intense, glass-coating purple hue. On the nose I found wild berry and spice with exotic floral tones. It was smooth with silky textures on the palate, displaying wild berry and spice with a hint of white pepper. The finish was fresh and clean with a wave of refreshing acidity tingling on the senses.

2014 Lagier Meredith Rosé

Mt. Veeder Syrah Blend, Syrah more

7/2/2015 - Eric Guido Likes this wine: 90 points

The 2014 Rosé was gorgeous with notes of fresh strawberry, floral tones, undergrowth and minerals. On the palate, it was remarkably fresh with balancing grip, displaying ripe berry tones and citrus. It finished fresh with inner floral tones and crisp minerality.

Just too intense and not ready for primetime. Maybe 2017?

I am never ready to call a Lagier Meredith Syrah mature, but this is as close as I have ever gotten. Deep berry, soy, earth and warm herbs were all in evidence from the first sniff/sip. On the palate the tannins were gentle and integrated, making the wine very easy to drink. There's still plenty of fruit, so I think the plateau of maturity is goi g to be quite long. Enjoy. Wait. Entirely up to you.

2004 Lagier Meredith Syrah

Mt. Veeder more

6/20/2015 - Harry Cantrell Likes this wine: 90 points

Deep garnet. Nose smelled like a new spicy syrah. Initially drank like a barrel sample, all plums, pepper, blackberries. But this was one that changes with a few hours' airing to a more complex, secondary scents, more pepper and fresh herbs.

What an amazing wine! The nose was beautiful. Filled with smoke, peat, mineral, and even a little taste of delicious steak.

This vintage wasn't nearly as good as the 2001 and 2002. It just seemed a bit awkward/off balanced and didnt really have anything going on that caught my attention.

It is a good wine, but I just had higher expectations. It can definitely spend some more time in bottle.

Might have been drinking this too early or too little decant (1 hour). It is bright and full of red fruit. Nice acidic notes, but a bit too concentrated on the palate.

Menthol and honey on the nose. On the palate, intense tart cranberry, raspberry, and blackberry, with notes of dried beef/iron, white pepper, and earth, and a nicely contrasting note of lemon curd on the medium to long finish, with powerful acidity that makes this almost a challenge to drink; luckily I enjoy acidity. This is a unique expression of Syrah, and a high-quality one. It strikes a nice balance between the black fruit, olives, and raw meat of cooler-climate Syrah and unctuous, berried, high-octane warm-climate versions. Excellent value at about $40.

PnP. Extremely dark with no sign of age. Smooth, big, balanced, clean, fresh....I could go on and on. Simply unbelievable that a California Syrah from 1999 shows this well. Definitely has a long life ahead. Highly recommended.

Purchased from WineBid for $40 in April 2015

This cork showed above average ingress so I'm guessing a bit more evolved. Nonetheless, excellent. Tart berries, red plums, and cherry skins are followed by a subtle dusting of ash that borders mineral notes, and then pretty notes of perfume like florals and potpourri. Mostly resolved tannins, this came across in a middle spot between youth and age and would have benefitted from food. And yet, wonderful on its own.

Very likable, masculine, well balanced acidity and fruit... Had this side by side with a 97' grand cru, interesting pair up. It made a very amzing grand cru a bit sweet for me. First world problems ;) I would drink this again for sure.

Excellent wine. Bought as part of Berserkers Day. First one in the vertical that we pulled out. Drinking perfectly right now. Popped and poured. More old world in nature (aka, not overly fruit forward and a decent amount of earth). Very well done as always from this producer.
