Although this is our first year working with the Parsons' Ranch, we’re off to a terrific start!  Picked October 14th and October 25th, 40% whole clusters were used in the indigenous fermentation.  Aged in all French oak, 36% new.  Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Russian River Valley Syrah

Tasting Note:

Inky black-purple in color.  Heady aromas of blackberry compote and fresh churned butter.  Smells just like Grandma’s blackberry cobbler!  As full-bodied as our Dry Creek Syrah but perhaps with slightly brighter acidity (as expected from Russian River Valley).  Slurp-able now but even better with cellaring.  Drink from mid-2008 through 2013.  (MRO – 3/1/07)
