Our second syrah, Parkinson Vineyard, come from a cool climate
region of the Napa Valley and shows off a whole different
style then our Mitchell Vineyard Syrah. We are excited to
show the differences and educate our consumers on the diversity
of the Syrah grape.
The Parkinson Vineyard has now proven to be quite consistent.
The color is dark and the aromas fly out of the glass with
lots of dark fruit, spice and earth. On the palate the wine
is intense with big rich fruit, spice and hints of earthiness.
The tannins are present, but not overwhelming and allow the
finish to slowly leave your palate with nice mouth watering
