Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 95% Syrah and 5% Viognier.

This Syrah is a full-bodied wine with a deep, rich purple color and ripe, balanced tannins. The nose of this wine has smoky black cherry and berry jam, a hint of chocolate, as well as caramel and plum. The aromas follow through to the palate, along with flavors of cassis, plum and berry, with subtle smoky oak from the French barrels used in the aging process. The wine finishes long, with a lively peppery spice. This wine was not fined or filtered prior to bottling in order to preserve as much of its complexity and character as possible.

The 2003 Saralee's Vineyard Syrah can be enjoyed with a wide variety of foods. It spices up the neutral and tones down the spicy. Try it with braised lamb shanks, filet mignon with Shiitake mushrooms and potato cakes, or even grilled chicken or snapper, spiced Caribbean-style.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
