Winemaker's Notes

(From 2005 Vintage) This is the sixth vintage of our entry level, St. Joseph-like, Syrah. It is made from fruit grown at a superb vineyard site that is planted in the hills just west of the Amador County line, just a few miles from the Mokelumne River (hence the California appellation). We find the wine is very forward and drinkable shortly after bottling, making it a great everyday Syrah and perfect as a restaurant glass pour. Aromas are raspberry, smoky, wild gamey, peppery, and cinnamon.
