2007 Napa Valley Syrah

by David on March 21, 2010

New release! When you crave deep, dark intensity this is the wine for you! Thick skinned and loaded with pigment, Syrah was born to make a statement! It’s such a pleasure to begin releasing our reds from the 2007 vintage. It was about as close to a textbook growing season as we could hope for. […]
