3 Horse Ranch Vineyards

Syrah Mourvèdre SRV 2013

Northern Rhone Red! | continued=>

MAN, this wine is drinking spot-on right now! Our 2013 (cool-climate vintage) Syrah-Mourvèdre from the Snake River Valley AVA (Winegrowing Appellation) is a classically-styled Northern Rhone Syrah with Old World charms. The Syrah black fruit tones of plums, currants and blackberries are present, yet subdued over time. The vineyard notes of earth, straw, mushrooms, and stone minerals are more recognizable with maturation in the cellar. The pepper, allspice, cloves, cedar, nutmeg and oak tannins all perfectly complement, making for the perfect pairing with game, lamb, smoked meats, steak, and poultry. This wine keeps on giving and giving! It still remains as one of the standout fan favorites at the tasting room, for season veterans and wine newbies alike! Dress up your next dinner or evening with this elegant, seductive Idaho Red! Thank You from @3HorseRanch ! 🤠🍷🍇

VINTAGE 2013: Snake River Valley produced modest wine grape crop yields, but of high-quality in 2013. A combination of an unusually chilly winter, a late Spring frost event, and a spell of short-but-significant rains in September shuffled the usual order in which varieties ripened and readied for harvest. While the Idaho Wine Commission reported that yields across the state were slightly lighter than 2012, the flavors were more concentrated in the fruit, giving winemakers a delicious foundation for the vintage. The Snake River Valley's hot June and July months and a pleasant, overall sunny autumn set the tone for the rest of the harvest. Winemakers in the region reported outstanding quality in the 2013 Syrah, Merlot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Cabernet Sauvignon, with equally delicious but slightly limited Riesling.
