We planted a few cuttings of a rare selection of Syrah in 1988. Cuttings from those nine vines were propagated and two acres were planted in 1999, another 1/2 acre was planted in 2000. Syrah seems to thrive in this appellation. The rocky mineral laden soil restrains Syrah’s natural vigor, and this clone produces smaller clusters than most clones of Syrah elsewhere in the state. The wine coming from these vines is very dark, supple and substantial in weight on the palate. Moderate, silky tannins surround vivid flavors of black cherry and blackberry, with a hint of black pepper. A pleasant mineral-earthiness and restrained oak complement the
flavors and extend the harmonious finish.
Food pairings – Some of the food we like to serve with this wine are: grilled steak, prime rib, guinea hen, sausage, mushroom risotto, and grilled eggplant.
