Winemaker Notes

The Eponymous Syrah has a attractive deep purple, garnet color of the wine leads to a complexity of aromas that hint of black pepper, rosemary and a touch of smoky, oven-roasted meat dripping character that is typical of the best Syrahs. The flavors follow the palate, with added spice notes. This full- bodied wine is well-balanced, with good weight and grip that glides evenly across the palate, finishing with pleasing flavors that linger. Drink now through 2013.

A great wine for summer BBQ's of smoked and grilled meats.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

A lush, smooth and frankly delicious Syrah that exhibits the only-in-Callifornia style. Fruit doesn't get much riper than this bottle of blueberries and chocolate. But the finely ground tannins and good acidity, it has proper structure.

Eponymous
In 1966, Robert Pepi's family bought a ranch with vineyards in the Napa Valley, thinking it a retreat from the city. In 1980, he and his retired father decided to start a winery on the property, giving it the name they each carried, Robert Pepi. Thefirst harvest was in 1981, and Pepi has been making wine ever since. After the winery sold, he became a consulting winemaker, working mainly in California, but traveling also to Argentina, Colorado, and Texas.

In 2008 Pepi found a Syrah vineyard with which he wanted to work, and in 2009 made Cabernet Franc from the MacAllister Vineyard and a Cabernet Sauvignon from Spring Mountain in Napa Valley.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
