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.

What does a good year mean to you? Rich, concentrated flavors, beautiful balance and varietal character spilling out of the glass. Our 2007 Napa Valley Syrah is loaded with bold black plum, ripe cherry, dried herbs, cocoa and toasty vanilla-oak.

Syrah and food: Our Syrah partners well with rustic fare like beef stew, wild game, grilled sausages or slow-cooked dishes. Mediterranean dishes are a natural for this native of southern France. Savoring a glass of the Syrah with Colleen’s recipe for Mediterranean Pork Tenderloin is the next best thing to an evening in Provence. Bon appétit!
