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

Savory and dark fruit notes in the nose develop into blackberries, sage & a hint of dried orange peel on your palate.  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 2020. 

Other notes

Our Syrah pairs extremely well with rich meats. Think spiced leg of lamb with pomegranate molasses or muscovy duck with saffron rice and fresh mushrooms.

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.
