Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The Kuljian Vineyard is located off Westside Road in Dry Creek. It sits atop a sandy/loam bench thick with pebbles, rocks and stones. The climate is warm enough to fully ripen Syrah, yet cool enough to produce a wine with structure, elegance and equilibrium. At only 1.5 acres, Kuljian is one of the tiniest vineyards we harvest.
Each year, Kuljian produces concentrated, opulent Syrah. This 2007 is dark, dense and sumptuous. The nose ripe and plum-like, with earth, spice, smoke and leather. Very hedonistic. The palate is full, lush and backed by smooth, well-integrated tannins.
"Slightly more backward is the unfined, unfiltered 2007 Syrah Kuljian Vineyard, which spends 19 months in French oak. It exhibits more tannin along with similar floral, blackberry, and cassis characteristics, beautiful density, and full body. The day I tasted the wine, it was playing it closer to the vest than the Saralee's Syrah. The Kuljian should evolve for 8-10 years. 90+ points."

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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...Read More About Sonoma County

The home base of Syrah is the Northern Rhone, where it creates the exclusive wines of Hermitage and Cote Rotie.
