2004 Syrah
Richards Family Vineyard, Sonoma Valley

Planted on a hillside overlooking the Sonoma Valley to the east and Sonoma Mountain to the south, this 3.5 acre vineyard is covered in a series of Sonoma volcanic soils amongst outcroppings of bedrock as large as Volkswagens. This former Lavender farm was replanted to Syrah in the late 90's. Remnants of the Lavender farm exist as a purple flowered perimeter to the vineyard and a ½ acre block alongside the Syrah. The lavender is harvested in mid to late summer and sold to Williams-Sonoma for fireplace starter bundles. The Syrah is farmed to our meticulous standards and is typically one of the last vineyards harvested of all of our sites. The wine is medium to full bodied, outrageously perfumed, silky and sexy. Not all about power, this wine reminds us of a gorgeous, classically vinified Cote Rotie. At this point barrels of this wine are divided between Cuvee's Christine, Keltie and Moriah. All three of these wines benefit from the outrageous perfume that this wine offers. Bottled on it's own it is true exotica! This wine was fermented 100% whole cluster and aged in a combination of new & used French Oak barrels for 36 months without even a single racking. Throw a rack of Lamb on
