Winemaker Notes

At the winery, the Syrah was blended with a bit of Viognier and some Grenache from 85-year-old vines. The wine was aged for 20 months in French oak, The Grenache added some breadth to the wine, particularly notes of wild strawberries. The Viognier brightened the color, contributing floral notes and softening the tannins.

What's surprising about this Syrah is how soft it is on the front end. Flavors of blackberry jam, black cherry and vanilla are unveiled as you sip this wine and those notes stay in evidence through a lengthy finish.

Connoisseurs' Guide

Everything about this medium-full-bodied effort impresses for its balance and energy. Its outgoing aromas are a bright, forward, moderately rich mix of boysenberry and white pepper with hints of stones and minerals. It is supple in its early palatal impressions and firmer with being hard or the least bit abrasive towards the back. Its fruit is mid-sized, on point and continuous, and its finish is clean, long and agreeable. It can benefit from aging but does not need it, and its price is right.

Alexander Valley Vineyards
Alexander Valley Vineyards is owned and operated by the Harry Wetzel family. Founded in 1975, it is located on Cyrus Alexander's old homestead.

The Wetzel Family Estate now grows fourteen grape varieties, on diverse sites stretching from the banks of the Russian River up onto the hillsides. Each grape variety is matched to a specific soil type and exposure. Vineyard Manager Mark Houser and Winemaker Kevin Hall work as a team to maximize fruit flavor in the vineyard and to create balanced wines that capture the grapes’ varietal characteristics. Hank Wetzel oversees the vineyard and winery operations, and his wife Linda continues to oversee administration. Now the third generation of Wetzels has joined the winery. Harry Wetzel, IV is assistant winemaker while younger brother Robert is the National Sales Manager.

Alexander Valley Vineyards produces 100,000 cases annually, 17 varietal wines and proprietary blends. Seventy-five percent of AVV’s production is red wine. Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon constitute roughly half of total production. Other varietals include Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, Gewurztraminer, Syrah, Sangiovese, Viognier, and Cabernet Franc.
