Russian River Valley, CAL
 Syrah is a charming chameleon of a grape, whose wines vary from the complex, peppery stars of France’s Northern Rhône Valley to the rich, full-fruited blockbusters of Australia (where they call it ‘Shiraz’). This stunning example hails from California’s premium Sonoma region, where Syrah takes on a whole new level of sophistication …

And who better to give you a taste than DeLoach Vineyards, a 12-time Wine & Spirits Winery of the Year? Their talented winemaker, Brian Maloney, sourced the Syrah for this special ‘Private Collection’ release from prime-sited vineyards throughout the sought-after Russian River Valley. Here, chilly temperatures and trademark fog slow the ripening of grapes at night, so they hang on the vine longer and develop fuller, more concentrated flavors. And in a fantastic vintage like 2016, quality is through the roof.

You’re in for ripe blackberry, espresso, and classic black pepper aromas. On the palate, there’s more rich black fruit, plus chocolatey spice notes that carry through to the long, silky finish. An impressive dinner party wine, this smooth Syrah will pair well with slow-cooked meats, charred portobello mushrooms, and more.
