Description<p>Classic, elegant and modest – that’s what you expect of basic black. Whether it’s a little black dress or a traditional dinner jacket, you need a reliable staple, something that’s versatile and ready to go on a moment’s notice. That’s exactly what we’ve delivered in our signature Syrah – an essential, chic and reasonably priced red.</p><p>Partnered with poultry, Syrah acts as a foil to what might otherwise be a dull dry white meat providing a refreshing contrast of berries and a cracked pepper quality similar to the seasoning on the bird. Think of it like a side of cranberry sauce.</p><p>In a more casual setting with barbecued or grilled meats, it adds interest with peppery smoke elements and a lively interplay of fruit and spice. North Coast grapes from mainly Mendocino and Sonoma Counties give our 2006 Syrah all the intensity of a red Hermitage, yet at a fraction of the price.</p><h2>Awards</h2><p><strong>Silver Medal, 2010 World Wine Championships:</strong></p><p>"Mild aromas of cherry and banana custard and cedar shavings with a supple, dryish medium body and a juicy, tangy blackberry, melted chocolate bar and whipped cream finish.
