Winemaker Notes

The estate vineyard, named in honor of Fess' late son-in-law, was planted in 1989 to predominantly traditional Rhone style varietals. The warm days and cool nighttime temperatures at this vineyard allow for a long growing season and, consequently, great maturity and flavor development in our grapes.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Focused, elegant and compact, the 2011 Syrah Rodney's Vineyard spent 21 months in 38% new French oak, with the balance in 1- to 2-year-old barrels, prior to bottling. Cassis, cherry blossom, white flowers, licorice and sweet spice are some of the nuances here, and it has fine tannin and solid focus through the finish. It-s an outstanding Syrah that will have a decade of longevity.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Warm, slightly sweet aromas of smoked applewood and hickory waft from this rich and decadent Syrah sourced from the Fess Parker estate. On the dark fruit-laced palate are black currant and cherry cola flavors, bolstered by black licorice and followed by a long finish of vanilla cream.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast California wine district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the Central Coast California wine region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few Central Coast reds and whites. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
