2004 PARKINSON
Syrah

Winemaking Information
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.

Tasting Notes
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 fruit.
