SONOMA COUNTY

Hidden Terrace Vineyard, Syrah

The Hidden Terrace Vineyard is a well-kept secret sequestered on a steep south-facing slope at the edge of our Mountain Estate, high above the Sonoma Valley floor. Farmed entirely by hand due to the severe incline, this small vineyard is composed of rare tuff (volcanic ash) soil that produces Syrah of unique varietal distinction.

Tasting Notes

This classic northern Rhone styled syrah reminds me of crisp fall evening air with smoky aromas from a fireplace, roasting plums, rhubarb and white pepper. On the palate this wine has a delightfully clean pomegranate flavor with bright acid and dusty tannins. It is the perfect pairing for festive winter meals with friends and family; match with roast lamb, pork and yes dare we say, your Thanksgiving Turkey. We only wish we had more to share!
