Cockamamie Calaveras County Syrah 2011

by Jeff Stai

  • Jeff's made a whopper of a wine with this intense Syrah with a whole lot of fruit.
  • He pointed to a vineyard just below his winery and said he'd like to buy those grapes. The Angels gave him everything he needed. And he's made the wine at a ridiculous price.
  • Grab a bottle of this before all the Twisted Oak fanboys (there are thousands of them) pile in and grab this wine out from under you!

The Facts

Grape
Syrah

Wine Type
Big Red

Alcohol
13.70%

Bottle size
750ml

Ageing advice
Should age 2-5 years.

Serving advice
This is still a fairly young Syrah so a little breathing will help open up the aromas and flavors. I prefer to enjoy a wine over a period of time and let it develop in the glass but decanting is always fine.

Local food match
I like this Syrah with a nice slow braised pot roast. I season the meat with just salt about an hour before searing it and throwing it in the slow cooker. I brown a bunch of onions and deglaze the pan with some leftover red wine and that goes in the cooker too with whatever spices sound like a good idea at the time.
