Winemaker's Notes

Crafted from a blend of 90% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Viognier and 1% Zinfandel. The complex blending of these varietals gives a greater depth of flavors while showcasing the inherent fruit and spice characteristics of the Syrah grape.

Aromas of bold raspberry and boysenberry fruit. Flavors of black raspberries carry foward with hints of black tea, rich chocolate, and a touch of toast in the finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Kunde has nailed this price point for Syrah. It’s rich and complex enough to put on the table beside a fine meal, and while it’s not quite in the league of a cult Syrah, on the other hand it won’t demand all the attention. Dry and finely tannic, it features flavors of blackberries, cherries, leather, mocha, tobacco, pepper and sage, and finishes long and spicy."

Not the same taste as the 2002 vintage, Has chocolate and dark berry flavor, may need more time to develop

Learn About Sonoma County

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...
