Winemaker Notes

Deep red in color with a touch of purple, our 2008 California Syrah is once again likely to be the hidden gem in the Smoking Loon wines. The intense dark fruit on the nose has layers of blackberry, cassis, and black olive, well-balanced with hints of vanilla and brandy-soaked cherries. Rich berry cobbler flavors on the palate underscore the fruit-forwardness of this Syrah. Notes of cedar from the long, steady oak aging are well-integrated with the massive fruit flavor. Silky and medium-bodied like a Pinot Noir, our Syrah finishes with dark cherry and milk chocolate flavors, and a nice, bright acidity.

A juicy rib eye or New York steak topped with caramelized onions would pair well with the rich, dark flavors of our Smoking Loon Syrah. Try this with Korean Barbeque, or a grilled blackened chicken breast.

Red 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, 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.
