Winemaker Notes

Red cherry color with a hint of mahogany on the rim. Aromas of tobacco, sage, cedar, coco powder and an ever so slight hint of Ruby red grapefruit. True to form as with many cool climate Syrah-based wines, this wine exhibits flavors of red currant, black plum and slate along with hints of green olive. Balanced acidity showcases the well-integrated tannins and lingering salinity on the finish.

Blend: 79% Syrah, 15% Grenache, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Viognier

At Tolosa, our quest is to harmonize all aspects of terroir and to balance depth with complexity. To achieve the purest translation of place to taste.

They embrace traditional methods such as hand punch down and whole-berry uncrushed fermentations, and we enhance these practices with cutting-edge technology in soil exploration and vineyard mapping. Above all, we share a desire to handcraft exceptional wines that reflect and celebrate the distinct character of Edna Valley. Focused on estate and single vineyard releases, and emphasizing Pinot Noir, Tolosa is eager to share what the land can express in the hands of our talented winemakers.

Edna Valley

View all wine

California’s coolest wine growing area, Edna Valley excels in the production of high quality Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Rhone Blends and aromatic white wines. It has a cool Mediterranean climate and an incredibly long growing season, giving late-ripening varieties plenty of opportunity to take their time to develop great phenolic complexity.

Its northwest-to-southwest orientation creates a direct path for cool Pacific air and fog to penetrate the valley from the Los Osos and Morro Bay area inwards. Low hillsides of both calcareous and volcanic soils are home to much of the vineyard acreage of the Edna Valley.

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.
