Sy•rée [se-rey] n. derived from Syrah and “cuvée” (blend)

Our 2006 Syrée is based on two varieties - Syrah and Petite Sirah - both chosen from several highly regarded vineyards within the Paso Robles AVA. The Syrah and Petite Sirah lots were pumped over during fermentation and kept on the skins for up to 15 days to extract the maximum amount of color and tannins. The fruit was partially fermented in open top oak barrels, building up the structure of this wine. After being transferred to 100% French oak barrels, the two wines were blended after one year of aging and put back in to barrels for an additional six months.

Enjoy now through 2020.
