Aromas of ham, dill and black olives permeate the nose of this wine. The mouth is filled with earthy, savory flavors and a dry finish. This is a medium bodied, savory wine which pairs perfectly with a robust winter stew.
Syrah originated in the Rhône Valley of France. Our Syrah comes from Dark Horse Ranch, a 160 acre Biodynamic certified ranch and vineyard owned and operated by Heath and Paul Dolan. Located 8 miles north of the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River and sitting at 750 feet of altitude. This site provides outstanding conditions for growing this sun-thirsty varietal.
