more about Reserve Syrah
Christopher Creek Winery

2005 Reserve Syrah
Russian River Valley

The 2005 Estate Bottled Reserve Syrah (a classic vintage) was produced from a selection of Syrah barrels that showed the best aging potential. This full-bodied, well-structured wine reflects the exceptional quality of the multi-clone Syrah grapes grown on the multi-age vines on the hillside at the winery estate.

The color is dark violet and the fruit characteristics include black cherry, plum, blackberry and blueberry, with a hint of pomegranates and peppery, smoky accents. On the palate, the wine is rich and balanced with a long jammy finish. Drinkable now with decanting, this wine will nevertheless mature gracefully over the next 8-to-10 years, as the generous tannins soften.

Versatile with food, Syrah pairs well with grilled red meat dishes, duck, Mediterranean-style foods (olive oil, garlic, rosemary and thyme are its friends), as well as spicy food and cheese.
