2015 Dragon's Kiss Syrah, Sierra Foothills
GOLD MEDAL - 95 Points - 2018 California State Fair Wine Competition
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast - August 2018
A luscious mountain Syrah with velvety flavors of dark chocolate truffles, violets and rich blackberry rounded out with delicate oak nuances and leaving you with a delightful mouth feel and lasting finish.
100% Syrah from a 2,800 foot vineyard in the Sierra Foothills.
My mentor once told me "Doug,, as a winemaker you are given cocoa, and your chore is to make chocolate." Winddance Vineyard which sits at 2,800 feet in the Sierra Foothills offers amazing "cocoa" for one to make "chocolate". It as become a favorite vineyard of mine to source Syrah.
Aged for 22 months in 30% new French oak barrels
