Syrah / Shiraz

750 ML


Product Description

"A deep, dark, concentrated color leads to blueberry, black cherry, vanilla, cinnamon and toasty oak spice aromas in the nose. Firm tannins complement cherry cola, dark fruit, cedar and white pepper flavors while a full mid-palate gives way to a well-balanced and lingering finish. Enjoy with crispy roast duck, lamb, and spicy marinara pasta dishes." Denise Shurtleff, Winemaker


Varietal: Syrah / Shiraz

Region: Santa Maria Valley

Region Description:

Northern most wine region of Santa Barbara County. The Santa Maria River Valley is 19,000 acres of vineyards running east to west with the river. The Pacific Ocean sends cool air over the region, creating mild temperatures all year. This region has a growing season that is longer than most wine regions in California. The cool summers and long growing season combined account for slow maturation of the Pinot noir, Syrah, and Chardonnay grown there.
