This Syrah was sourced from mature vines at our estate vineyard in front of Thornton Winery. Found as the only red grape in France’s Northern Rhône Valley and as a blending grape throughout Southern France, it has traveled to many New World regions, including California and our very own Temecula Valley. It is a versatile wine which drinks well young to enjoy its lush fruit, as well as benefitting from a few years of aging when additional characters emerge.
Aroma: Plums and berries meld with a bit of sweet oak. With air, sweet dark flowers emerge.
Palate: Balanced red and dark fruits, lead to coffee, cocoa with some moderate tannins in this medium bodied Syrah suggesting it will age well for 2-4 years. Some charred oak lingers on the finish.
Pairing: Beautiful with cured meats as an appetizer, this will pair well with many pork and beef dishes as well as tomato-based sauces.
