Description: Grown in Sonoma County’s best Syrah producing appellations, the Dry Creek, Sonoma, and Alexander Valleys, this Syrah develops intense flavors. This Syrah is loaded with ripe, juicy jammy aromas, accented by a small amount of spice, and framed in luscious French oak. Our Reserve Syrah is great wine to drink with barbecue, Spicy Asian, thick Juicy Steaks, or stand alone. The rich flavors match well with braised pork or lamb to enhance your elegant dinners. Wonderful now, the wine has the balance to improve with bottle aging for the next three to five years.

Varietal Definition
Syrah is the eight hundred pound gorilla of Rhone grapes! In the vineyard and the winery, Syrah is typically an easy grape to work with - healthy, early ripening, resistant to mildew and rot; suitable for winemaking in a variety of styles. The wines from Syrah are tannic without being harsh. The wines will have a taste and smell of dark blue fruit like blackberries and blackcurrant, with a strong spicy side where one can find freshly ground pepper and other spices. Syrah is famous for its part in the French blends, such as Côtes du Rhone and Châteauneuf du Pape.
