National Syrah Day Everyday

National Syrah Day Everyday

The Bennett Valley is located in southern Sonoma and is known for cool-climate Pinot Noir and Syrah.   Ali and Andy made friends with Joe Vivio who owns the namesake vineyard, back in 2013.  The Syrah vines are planted on a bed of red, volcanic soil and the site is the last to warm up and the first to cool down. 

100% Neutral French oak.  20% Whole cluster.   Aged for 2 years in barrel, 3 in bottle before release in 2018.   

Nose is juicy, black plum, peppercorn, with carpaccio and tiger-lily (spicy, sweet).  Plush velvety tannins, bright acidity, satsuma plum.  On the palate is leather, baking spice, wet slate, cigar box.  Finish is savory with more carpaccio.    

Pair with eggplant Parmigiana, other Italian food, Shepherd's Pie, or mutton pie.   When you can’t reach for a Cab, grab a Syrah!!!    Pair with grilled meats, lamb and even chocolate.  :)

We chose the BEST barrels for this amazing BEST OF CLASS Award Winning wine!!!
