Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) The 2003 Cool Climate Syrah has great color, rich blueberry and black pepper character combined with a cedary-smooth finish and bright acid. The terroir of our “Lazy C” and “Lazy P” vineyards bring forward the cracked pepper and berry notes that are typical of Syrah from a cooler climate. This wine pairs well with seafood pasta dishes, tri-tip steak smothered in wild chanterelles, and chicken satay. The 2003 Cool Climate Syrah is very approachable now but will also age beautifully for 5 to 7 year...
