Winemaker's Notes:

A wonderful expression of cool climate Syrah – the gamey side of Syrah is balanced by the elegance and finesse of the cool climate fruit. The 2006 Carneros Syrah has aromas of bright blueberry and raspberry, nutmeg, dark roasted coffee and white pepper. The palate explores hints of toastiness and exhibits flavors of boysenberry and chocolate, ending in a lingering finish of plum and toast with nice acidity. Try this wine with pan seared venison steak and sweet potato mash.

About Buena Vista Winery:

Founded in 1857 as California's first premium winery, Buena Vista, under the direction of winemaker Jeff Stewart, is a leader in cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah. Straddling Sonoma County in the southern end of the Carneros appellation, the 523-acre Ramal Vineyard Estate is broken up into 167 small blocks, with 21 different clones of Chardonnay and 13 different clones of Pinot Noir, and is set along rolling south-facing hillsides overlooking the San Pablo Bay. The Ramal Vineyard is the crown jewel of all Carneros.

Most winemakers will agree that cool-climate wines like Pinot Noir are the most difficult to produce. And most will agree that Jeff Stewart does so with unparalleled success. Jeff comes to Buena Vista with over 15 years of achievement in cool-climate viticulture and his focus on gentle handling of the grapes and temperature moderation produces wines with complexity, character and depth.
