Winemaker's Notes

A blend of 96% Syrah co-fermented with 4% Viognier.

For our 2004 Saralee's Syrah we co-fermented a small amount of Viognier with the Syrah, a technique originally popularized in the Côte Rôtie district of the Rhône Valley. The presence of this floral white grape tends to lift the bouquet of the Syrah and soften the mouthfeel. This 2004 is textbook cool-climate Syrah. The nose is bold, exotic and packed with ripe plums and white pepper. The flavors are intense, ripe and well structured with beautifully balanced tannins. It is deep, firm, spicy and complex.
