Winemaker’s Notes

Primordial inky robe. Light cannot penetrate or escape. Deep blackberry syrup, fire-roasted blueberries, licorice root, Kalamata olive, dark cacao nibs, creosote, with mountain wildflowers from the Viognier. Extremely rich and concentrated on the palate, echoing blackberry liqueur, bittersweet chocolate, Madagascar vanilla bean, chrysanthemum, and lump charcoal. Hints of lavender and thyme. Hugely dense and backward now, this wine is lying in wait—6-15 years easily.

The aromatic complexity here is off the charts. The 2021 Syrah WeatherEye Vineyard High Canyon Series blossoms with an array of black licorice, olives, sage, wet asphalt, dusty currants and split pine. Silky and enveloping, this impresses further with its depths of dark red and black fruit accelerated by juicy acidity and underscored by a nearly salty core of minerality. A web of fine tannins descends upon the palate through the long and structured finale as exotic spices and sour citrus echo throughout. The 2021 performs like a well-muscled dancer.

Co-fermented with a splash of Viognier (as well as some whole clusters), the 2021 Syrah High Canyon offers a brilliant perfume of black and blue fruits interwoven with notions of ground pepper, exotic flowers, and white peach. It’s medium to full-bodied, concentrated, has ultra-fine tannins, and incredible purity of fruit. Yes, please.

There's an abundance of energy encapsulated in Liminal's 2021s. Winemaker Chris Peterson (also of Avennia) focuses entirely on single vineyard wines from the new WeatherEye vineyard on Red Mountain. His cool-toned and polished style, with low reliance on new oak, shines bright when integrated with WeatherEye's diverse selection of terroir. Any lover of Rhône-varieties wines, both Old World and New, owes it to themselves to check these out. WeatherEye is still a relatively new vineyard. I can only imagine what the future holds.
