Red Shift

2012 Syrah

$24/bottle.  95% Syrah co-fermented with 5% Viognier with layers of birght flavor.  Aromas of smoked meats and hard spices; flavors of black currant and dark plum.  Firm tannins surround a hint of pepper on the finish. But enough about that. When grapes collide with science, is Syrah the sound they make? Case in point: Before he lent his name to a space telescope, Edwin Hubble was an American astronomer whose observation of the red shift phenomenon led to the astounding and somewhat comforting idea that the galaxy is expanding. Therefore, so are our options. And Red Shift Syrah is one of them. As far as collisions go, DNA profiling has rooted out the ancient origins of Syrah. It turns out to be the long ago progeny of two obscure southeastern French grapes: Dureza and Mondeuse Blanche. As we now know, when they came together, their universe expanded. And the resulting phenomenon is our Martian Ranch Red Shift. Your own universe will begin to expand at the popping of the cork and will continue to the finish and beyond.
