A Killer Single Vineyard Sonoma Syrah for $24

"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Syrah Nolan Vineyard reveals a lovely perfume of violets and roses over the core of mulberries, black cherries and ground pepper plus a touch of cedar. The palate is firmly structured with notable rounded tannins supporting the pepper-laced black fruits, finishing a little dry and chewy." (WA)

"Velvety and dense, this vineyard designate from a cool appellation is floral and herbal as well as freshly celebratory in wild strawberry. A leathery texture finds balance and life in prickly acidity." (WE)

Winery Notes:
We source our Syrah grapes from Nolan Vineyard in Bennett Valley, Sonoma County. Bennett Valley has large areas of ancient volcanic soil that is well drained and provides the right balance for grapevines in order to grow high quality wine grapes. The area is also a cooler grape growing region due to the gap adjacent to the Sonoma Mountain which allows cool fog to dump into the valley and blanket it most nights. The result? Long growing seasons and concentrated fruit with deep color and flavors. Our Syrah is inky purple, bursting with dark blackberry fruit and rich in texture.
