2008 Rodgers Creek Syrah 6PACK
Tasted 6/26/19: Black fruit compote, dried herbs, and a hint of smoke
All Friends & Family orders will be shipped on August 8 or available for pick up at the winery on August 9 or 11. Given the summer heat and the delicate nature of these older vintage wines, we recommend you add a 6 or 12 bottle coolpack to your cart (depending on your order) before checkout. Adult signature required for delivery and highly recommended on the first delivery to reduce exposure to summer heat. A business address is recommended.
Our two Syrahs are cut from a different cloth—they are that unusual breed: cool-climate Syrahs. One is from inside the western edge of the Carneros appellation and the other is just over the boundary in the Sonoma Valley appellation. Both sites are high up on the same ridge in thin soils and much influenced by the cool marine air blowing from the Pacific through the so-called Petaluma Wind Gap. They are more similar in style to the wines of the northern, cooler end of the Rhone.
