This was a perfectly executed, flawless, highly polished rendition of a Central Coast Syrah - in fact, it was too perfect, and lacked soul and varietal character. Not sure what the winemaker (Heidi Peterson Barrett) is trying to prove here, but she needs to take a lighter hand in making this wine. It left me cold.

About This Producer


Heidi Barrett reached legendary status when she was making Dalla Valle and Screaming Eagle in the 1900s. She has since gone on to consult for several other small estates in the Valley, including Barbour, Paradigm and Revana. La Sirena is her personal project, started in 1994 and includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Muscat among its offerings. Future plans for La Sirena include developing Estate vineyards in the Eastern Canyons of Calistoga.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
