Robert Parker, The Wine AdvocateApproximately 35% whole clusters were used in this wine’s upbringing as well as 35% new oak. A terrific Syrah from this cool climate region, it boasts a dense purple color along with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood. Hints of ink, graphite, blackberries, blueberries, and forest floor characteristics are found in this full-bodied, rich, but never overwrought or too heavy beauty. Enjoy it over the next decade.
SyrahAlso known as Shiraz in Australia and South Africa, Syrah makes intense, deep wines with plenty of spice, fruit and alcohol. It thrives in warm climates, and is widely grown in Australia, California, and the Rhone region of France, where it makes Cote Rotie and Hermitage, and forms the backbone of Chateauneuf du Pape.

CaliforniaSince the famous Judgement of Paris in 1976 California wines have unquestionably ranked among the best in the world. From the Anderson Valley in the North through Temecula Valley in the South, California vineyards grow dozens of wine grape varietals that produce wines of many different styles. The California wine industry has steadily gained ground since the 1960s (the industry took a major hit following Prohibition), but its roots date back over 200 years. Major grape varietals include Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc. View all our items from California
