  • The Dark Side! Our Syrah is almost onyx in color with intense aromas of blackberry, espresso and spice. The traditional Syrah core of ripe black fruit is supported by well infused tannins. A pleasurable mouth full of wine that finishes forever.

    Wine Profile
    Tasting Notes
    This is a big, bold wine. The color is very dark red with deep purple undertones. The aromas are expressive, suggesting cranberry, plum, pepper, toasted oak and hints of vanilla and mocha. On the palate the wine is full bodied with a bold attack and a full midpalate leading into a long finish. The texture of the wine is rich. It is well rounded, but with a very nice balance of acid and tannin which provides a bold framework for the wine to age within. -Winemaker, Chris Corley
    Production Notes
    This Syrah is grown in a small block at our Knollwood Vineyard in Oak Knoll District. This section has generally produced the most complex and deeply textured Syrahs. We harvested this fruit on October 17, 2011 then hand-sorted and crushed the fruit into small fermenting bins. The bins were punched down by hand, and after 12 days on the skins, the fruit was pressed off to barrels. The wine was aged in barrels for 28 months prior to bottling. Drink Now through 2020. Oak – 18 Months in 100% New Oak (50% French / 50% Virginian)
