Tasting Notes:Elegantly perfumed with red berry and Rhone-like characteristics of licorice, spice and earth. The palate is complex and savory with concentrated fruit and packed with fine tannins. The aromas extend on to the palate with fresh acidity, a long lasting finish and old world rusticity.

About the Winemaker:
Winemaker Martin Mackenzie has crafted a beautiful 2006 Syrah after a cool growing season had everyone on the edge of their seats. Relief finally came in a steady streak of sunshine into the fall and the harvest, while late, was perfect thanks to excellent weather and the extra hang time provided. Native yeast and malolactic strains were employed to add complexity for the fermentation and maceration period which lasted upwards of four weeks. The Syrah was aged in the tightest grained French oak barrels with only about 35% new wood for 16 months. The finished wine was neither fined nor filtered to preserve the richness.

Additional Winemaker Notes:
Food Pairing Suggestions:Lamb, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews, and game will all pair beautifully with this wine. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs, and mushrooms will also complement nicely. Look for recipes where power is combined with elegance to mirror this wine’s style.
About the Winery
Petroni Vineyards For years, Lorenzo Petroni dreamed of bringing his love for wine to California. In 1992, he and his wife Maria Elena purchased a 37 acre estate just south of the famed Monte Rosso Vineyard in Sonoma Valley, the perfect location to produce his world class wines. At a steep 800 foot elevation, the mineral rich and rocky soil with south facing exposure proved the ideal spot in which to grow wine grapes. Learn more
