Our popular Syrah for every day pleasure is also a big hit in wine bars and restaurants across the US, Canada and England. This syrah, from the "western slopes of the Sierra" is a wine that everyone can afford to drink and enjoy. We blend about 60% of grapes from our lowest elevations with 40% from our highest vineyards to create a lovely, balanced syrah. This 2015 vintage has beautiful color with rich, silky, wild raspberry fruit flavors laced with pepper, sage, tar, and olive/herb tones. Aromas are raspberry, smoky, wild gamey, peppery, and cinnamon. The wine has a clean purity of Syrah fruit that is reminiscent of many St. Josephs and other Northern Rhones. It has forward fruit flavors and great acid balance. It is very smooth and savory in the mouth.
