Winemaker Notes

Purple/black color. Highly complex nose combines fruit aromatics of dark cassis and blackberry with site-driven aromas of earth, lavender and minerals. These notes continue on the palate where a strong sense of cool climate floral, graphite minerality is immediately apparent. The broodingly backward mid-palate that is typical of the vineyard features a core of deep, dark fruit and leads to a dense chewy finish featuring muscular, mouth-coating tannins.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2004 Syrah Eddie's Patch (400 cases) shares an opaque purple color in addition to notes of incense, blackberries, truffles, and spicy wood. It is a huge, dense, cool climate Syrah with a Pinot Noir-like sassafras character. Drink this big, earthy, terroir-driven effort over the next 10-12 years.
Rating: 93+

Wine Spectator
Shows off a ripe, bright, supple core of wild berry and black cherry fruit that's well-centered, with ripe tannins and a pleasant earth and spice edge on the finish.

California

Red Wine

View all wine

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—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to 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, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

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.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
