Winemakers notes ~ Viognier added during crush and co-fermented with “Merit Ferm” yeast a Rhone Valley yeast well suited for Syrah. Barreled in 50% French, 50% American oak for 30 months and then aged in the bottle for an additional six months before releasing.

Tasting notes ~ Our Syrah is a full bodied red wine with flavors of berries and roasted red peppers.  This wine has a spicy finish that is quite exciting. Note the flavors of cloves, cinnamon, and black pepper. We recommend serving this at room temperature. Try serving our Syrah with pork, steak, lamb, or pasta dishes with a heavy red sauce. Sharp Gouda goes nicely with this wine. Herbs, such as cinnamon, clove, oregano and pepper compliment this wine.
