The most noble of Rhône red varieties, syrah has traveled
farther and more successfully than any other. A native of southeast
France, it has been loved for centuries in the guise of northern
Rhône wines such as Côte-Rôtie, Hermitage, and Cornas. Its dark
robe, meaty, ageworthy texture and evocative perfume reminiscent of
fresh game, pepper, and violets give it pride of place among the
finest wine varieties in the world.
From the dramatically geological extrusions and the alluvial
outcropping dreamscape of the Alamo Creek Valley, located slightly
Northeast of the town of Santa Maria—the place where the wild
things roam—comes this intensely concentrated and mineral-rich
Syrah. Deeply colored, seductively perfumed, peppery and gamey, it
offers breathtaking balance.
For optimal expression, we suggest a gentle decanting, allowing the
wine to breathe an hour or two prior to consumption.
