Tasting Notes

A velvety, dense, yet soft wine with flavors of blackberries, blueberries cocoa, pepper and earthy notes that are framed beautifully with soft oak nuances. Aromas of rose petals, violets, and lavender fill your glass..

Production Notes

Co-fermented with 5% whole cluster Viognier

Winemaker Notes

Lying 750 feet above the Russian River, Montemaggiore Vineyards are steeply terraced on the western edge of the Dry Creek Valley. The steep mountainside is responsible for naturally low-yielding vines and the concentrated flavors in our Syrah. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean insures a steady stream of cool fog on most summer nights which makes for a perfect long slow ripening and good acid balance.

Cooperage Notes

Aged for 22 months in 20% new French oak barrels
