Winemaker

“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

This wine greets you with prominent aromas of fresh cranberry & plum with hints of black tea. Flavors continue the aromas and add cloves and anise. The texture is rich with prominent tannins followed by a long finish.

Production notes

Hand harvested. Fermented in 1 ton bins with 3 punch-downs per day.  Bladder pressed after an average 7 days of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation in barrel. 20 months of barrel aging in barrels of French, Hungarian and American origin, 18% new oak, 82% neautral oak. Bottled in June 2018. 

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.
