Back in the fall I found myself at an event for Whitty Farms. You may or may not know that the Whitty Farm folks have joined forces with the 13th Street folk to bring us a bigger better 13th Street Winery. This really should take 13th Street out of the shadows of its current cult winery status and shine a much deserved brighter light on it. What this will mean to existing fans of 13th Street is that those hard to get wines you have enjoyed over the years will become even harder to get once more people know about this excellent winery. On this day, Whitty got themselves a special license to pour wine on their property and 13th Street brought out two new wines just for the occasion – this happened to be one of them. This is a very fruit driven Syrah with lots of cherry aromas and flavours – also hints of white pepper, but this one’s all about the cherry, because the cherries keeps coming back to you, especially on the finish. Light and smooth and lots of, you guessed it, cherry … that’s what this 2006 Syrah is made of.
