more about Syrah
Christopher Creek Winery

2005 Syrah
Russian River Valley

At Christopher Creek, we take special care in the management of our vineyards, and as always we hand-pick, hand-sort and hand-macerate our fruit to produce a distinct wine from our edge of the Russian River Valley; the 2005 Estate Bottled Syrah is no exception.

Produced in the classical French style from multiple clone grapes, grown at the winery site, our 2005 Estate Bottled Syrah displays black plum and black cherry fruit, with tastes of cocoa, spice, minerals and subtle smoky notes. On the palate, the texture is smooth and ample with a very long, complex finish created by the rich, yet soft tannins. We recommend bottle aging this wine for at least a year before drinking to let the tannins soften and the fruit fully develop. Properly cellared, we expect this wine to age well for 6-to-8 years.

Try our Syrah with a barbecued, marinated tri-tip roast, game birds, lamb, beef stew or spicy foods (Mexican, chili, exotic Asian infusions). Syrah is a great food companion of chocolate.
