Winemaker Notes

Always a crowd pleaser, this year's version is stunning. Gorgeous fresh ripe blackberries, bouquets of violets, smoked meats with dried fennel, chalky powder, chewy toasted toffee with earthy undertones. Its smooth tannins, and soft creamy finish lingers for minutes.

Blend: 100% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
My favorite of the barrel samples, the 2011 Syrah The Hedge offers up deep, rich aromas and flavors as well as a voluptuously textured mouthfeel that’s hard to resist even now. Ripe and decadent, especially for the vintage, this blockbuster effort will be reasonably approachable on release, yet should also age gracefully given its overall balance and concentration.
Range: 93-95

Terry Hoage, Paso Robles, Central Coast, California
Focusing solely on Rhone-style wines, Terry Hoage Vineyards is a 100% organically-farmed estate in the acclaimed Westside of Paso Robles, California. Just off Highway 46, the special climate and unique terroir of Terry Hoage Vineyards produces exceptional fruit that is forward and focused. Their unique approach to winemaking and sustainable practices has Robert Parker saying: "This is the kind of wine the Central Coast should be producing more."

The wines are created using a minimalist philosophy. Using 100% French oak, the Hoages craft their wines without racking, fining or filtering. The only time the wines are moved is during the bottling process. With extremely minimal processing, the wines deliver intense fruit flavors and showcase Terry Hoage Vineyard's dedication to winemaking.

Paso Robles

View all wine

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, fruity, and powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

Syrah/Shiraz

View all wine

Marked by unmistakable aromatics, a savory palate, and an elegant texture, Syrah is capable of producing fascinatingly complex and long-lived wines with a stunning purple hue. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah’s best examples are found in Hermitage and Côte-Rôtie. It is also an important component of the GSM blends of the Southern Rhône and beyond, alongside Grenache and Mourvèdre. Both varietal Syrah and GSM blends are common in Australia and California and are gaining popularity in Washington State. In Australia, Syrah is known by the synonym Shiraz, which tends to indicate a bolder, fruit-driven style of wine, and is occasionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon for added depth and structure.

In the Glass

At its best, Syrah shows aromas and flavors of purple fruits, fragrant violets, baking spice, white pepper, smoke, and even bacon fat. Many examples from California aim to recreate this savory style, while others focus more on concentrated fruit flavors. In Australia, under the name Shiraz, it shines as that country’s unofficial signature red grape, producing deep, dark, intense, and often jammy reds.

Perfect Pairings

Cool-climate Syrah, with its peppery spices, is a natural match with flavorful Moroccan-spiced lamb dishes, where the spice is more about flavor than heat. With Australian Shiraz, grown in warmer regions, heavy meat dishes with abundant protein and fat are a necessity to match the intensity of the wine.

Sommelier Secret

Due to the success of Australian “Shiraz,” this synonym for Syrah has been adopted by winemakers throughout the world. If the label says “Shiraz,” you can typically expect a plush, fruity, and potent wine made in the Australian style. New World "Syrah" will generally more closely resemble the French style.
