Sy•rée [se-rey] n. derived from Syrah and “cuvée” (blend)
Syrée is a unique blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah from several of Paso Robles’ finest vineyards. It is a limited production wine consisting of reserve lots chosen for their luscious, ripe fruit character with round, sweet tannins and fine French oak aromas. We gave this wine longer maceration time in order to extract maximum color and flavor. After fermentation, the wine received nearly 2 years of aging in barrels and puncheons (132 gallon barrels), with 36% new oak.
