Sourced from vineyards in both Carneros and the Oak Knoll District. The quality of this inaugural 2003 Syrah is the reason we continue making this varietal every vintage. It has evolved into a remarkably sophisticated wine. Earthy dark fruit and savory meat aromas speak to the characteristics of classic northern Rhone wines. Refined flavors of boysenberry and raspberry layered with savory barbeque, dried herbs and potpourri. The tannins have integrated seamlessly and the medium plus acid is indicative of its cool climate fruit. Only 4 cases released. As thanks for your support and enthusiasm of this noble varietal, I have aged this wine in my cellar for my LIST Members to now enjoy.
