Our winemaking philosophy of concentrating the varietal characteristics
and producing wines of distinction is embodied in our 2003
Syrah. Dark ruby in color, this Syrah is a complex, bold red
wine made in an inky, jammy style. Flavors revolve around
ripe blackberry and cherry with a spicy, nutty aroma that
is very characteristic of the varietal.
The wine was aged in American oak barrels for 12 months, keeping
the wood nuances integrated and balanced. A lingering caramel,
honeyed finish is laced with tones of coffee and earth. This
is a full-bodied wine with medium tannins, and the mouth feel
is lush, rich and concentrated.
