The 2012 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition has grown by leaps and bounds since its founding in 1983. The 2012 event was just held in January with over 4,900 wines entered and 60 prestigious experts as judges. Our 2009 Syrah has received a double gold medal.
Rich and luscious, with floral and spicy aromas of violets, blackberry, and ripe plum over notes of licorice, leather, sandalwood, and sweet oak. Concentrated on the palate with intense black fruit, fig, tobacco, espresso, and spicy oak. Balanced and opulent. Braised short ribs.
Sante Magazine has awarded our 2009 Syrah a Gold Star.
Fleshy and complex, this is a spicy, ripely flavored Syrah of excellent quality. It is lightly oaky and long on the finish, tasting of blackberry, cassis, toast, spicy oak, and cedar. Aged 14 months in French oak barrels, 40% new.
Acclaimed wine industry journalist has rated our 2009 Syrah, Napa Valley with 4 stars.
