2017 Syrah, Russian River Valley

Our first Syrah from Russian River Valley.

Bronze medal: 2022 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Silver medal: 2021 San Francisco International Wine Competition

Tasting Notes

Aromas of cedar, Italian herbs and surprisingly, lemon cake. Full-bodied flavors of blackberry and blackcurrant with an unexpected citrus zest and a dry finish.

Pairing Notes

Great with everyday meals but particularly roasted meats and stews as well as some spicy dishes. Pairs well with semi-hard, hard and smoked cheeses and suprisingly, blue cheese.

Winemaker's Notes

This was our first time harvesting Syrah from Russian River Valley instead of Amador County. It's definitely different with more herbal and citrus notes - a very elegant wine.

Production Notes

100 cases produced in 100% new French oak.
