Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
From the high elevation and poor soils of the Pisoni Vineyard, the 2008 Syrah Susan’s Hill was fermented with 25% stems, and aged in all French oak, of which 30% was new. Among the most backward of the 2008 Santa Lucia Highlands Syrahs I tasted, it exhibits noble sweetness in its charcoal-infused black currant and blackberry fruit. Notions of grilled meats, smoke, black tea, and flowers also emerge from this wine of exceptional intensity as well as full-bodied power.
 
Winery Notes
Winery Notes:
Susan's Hill, named for Gary's sister Susan, resides on one of the highest ridges of Pisoni Vineyards. The top of Susan's Hill is exposed to the elements and receives a great deal of wind. The coarse, rocky soils ensure that the vines are extremely stressed, resulting in wines that are dark in color and very intense.
 

Additional Information

Varietal :
Syrah
Also 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.

Region :
California
Since 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
