“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?”

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 and the finish is pure silk!

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 4 punch-downs per day. 5% Viognier co-fermented with the Syrah. 10% of batches foot-stomped with stems and fermented with native yeast. Grapes are pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. 16 months of barrel aging in 11% new barrels, 34% 2nd and 3rd use barrels, and 55% old barrels. Bottled in February 2019. 

Other notes

Our Syrah would go nicely with filet mignon or braised short ribs, sweetbreads or a cumin-spiced leg of lamb. 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.
