Syrah 2013 – Limited Edition Library Wine

This wine is sold at our Lake George tasting room, the Queensbury Production Facility, and online! Available for both shipping or pickup.


Introducing Adirondack Winery’s FIRST Library Wine!


What is a Library Wine?
In 2014, we began setting aside four cases of our best dry varietal wines, each of that particular vintage year. Stored in the proper conditions  (in a cool, dark place, arranged on their side), just for you, we have been saving four cases of each ever since! 

How did we decide which wines to put in the Library?
There's a different and special reason for choosing a library wine – whether we had only created a limited supply or the wine sold out too quickly, it was immensely popular or it won a particularly notable award in its vintage year. Each wine is chosen for a unique reason.

Syrah in the Library
We recently sold out of our latest (and final) vintage of Syrah. A light bodied red, it has always been a hit for summertime. This particular vintage – the first to be released from our Library – is our 2013 Syrah (Lake Ontario, NY Grape Origin). It won a Silver Medal at the Critics Challenge International Wine Competition and earned a solid score of 87 points. 

With a cork closure, this wine has benefited from time spent bottle aging. In general, red wines benefit the most from long term aging, as the tannins of the wine join together to form “long chains”. This smooths out the wine and gives it a silkier, smoother mouthfeel that only an aged red can have. 

Upon tasting this wine from the library, we thoroughly enjoyed it and hope you do too – we currently have less than 4 cases in stock, so get it before it’s gone forever!

Tasting Notes
Fruit forward at the start, our Syrah is smooth and luscious. Flavors of dark berry combine with subtle oak, to create light tones of caramel, chocolate, black pepper & a balanced tannic finish.
SILVER: 2015 Critics Challenge International Wine Competition (87 points!) (2013 vintage); BRONZE: 2015 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition (2013 vintage)
Food Pairing Notes
Syrah pairs well with smoky barbecue foods, burgers, steak, lamb, and spicy dishes. Sharp cheeses and dark chocolate desserts make an excellent match, too!
