    Winemaker Notes

    At 1,700 acres the French Camp Vineyard outside San Luis Obispo is the largest single vineyard on Californias Central Coast.and one of the most remote. Searching for high-quality grapes in the area, Napa-based winemaker Tom Eddy discovered a promising block of Syrah at French Camp and contracted for part of the crop for his Buffalo Ridge label. This is the second bottling of Buffalo Ridge Syrah: its a big, powerful wine, rich with blackberry pie, raspberry and briary fruit notes with a hint of vanilla, nutmeg and clove spice. Some spice and vanilla lingers on the mid palate. It has a silky finish, with a pleasant earthy quality reminiscent of Rhone Valley wines. Its robust flavors make this a Syrah for the grill.

    Buffalo Ridge, California
    Veteran Napa Valley winemaker Tom Eddy created the Buffalo Ridge red-wine brand as a destination for "wonderful fruit" that he found in California and Washington state vineyards, but which did not have a home in his Tom Eddy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon program. "I saw that consumers were looking for wines that were easy to drink, went well with food and fit their budgets. I was introduced to the French Camp vineyard in California's Central Coast, and a particular Syrah block there looked promising. I made the first Buffalo Ridge Syrah from French Camp in 1997, and I'm excited about the quality of wines that can be made from this and other 'undiscovered' vineyards in California and Washington."

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties, covering nearly double the vineyard acreage of whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon reigns as king.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while old, gnarly Zinfandel vines survived Prohibition.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

    The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.
