Winemaker's Notes

The Handley Vineyard Syrah is rich and complex. Much of this complexity is due to the fact that it is made from two Syrah clones from our Dry Creek Valley vineyard. Clone 877 provides dark raspberry and chocolate notes, and clone 470 contributes much of the structure and tannins. The wine offers aromas of blueberries and cinnamon. The blueberry notes continue on the front of the palate, moving into strawberries and chocolate through the long textured finish. Fruity flavors, soft tannins, and good texture all combine to make this Syrah pair with bold flavors. Try it with duck and rabbit.
