Varietal Qualities

Syrah is one of the oldest wine grape varieties, originating in France. Because of California’s unique climate it is too widely cultivated here. The grape is round and dark purple with medium thick peel, flesh soft and juicy with sweet and sour taste. Syrah is considered as the “Prince “among red grapes, and grows well in warm climates.

Wine Notes

This Rhone inspired Syrah has a rich taste and lovely tasting notes of white and black cracked pepper, chanterelles, huckleberries, graphite and backyard plums. Fine, elegant tannins are prevalent, as is a long, lingering finish. Balanced and nicely structured during the wine making process, we feel our Syrah is a dynamic representation of our vineyard’s potential.
