2016 Syrah

2016 Syrah
2016 Syrah

“Over a decade of working with Snake River Valley Syrah has taught me to embrace the savory notes so characteristic of Syrah from this region.  I also love the dark fruit flavors and smooth finish I can coax out of this beautiful grape.  Our flagship red wine consistently brings out the carnivore in me.  Dinner anyone?”

- Melanie Krause, Winemaker

Tasting notes

Allspice and black pepper notes in the nose develop into blackberries, dried orange peel and a hint of chai.  The intensity of the bright fruit is mouthwatering.   Expected to drink best from 2020-2015.

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 4 punch-downs per day. 10% of batches foot-stomped with stems and fermented with native yeast. Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 16 months of barrel aging in 30% new barrels, 30% 2nd and 3rd use barrels, 40% old barrels. Bottled in February 2018. 

Other notes

Our Syrah would go nicely with filet mignon or braised short ribs. When you need decadence pair it with a chocolate ganache to reaffirm you faith in humanity.

When to Drink

During the first year, decant for an hour & then enjoy.  While approachable early in its life, this wine will continue to evolve beautifully over the next 5-15 years.
