Flavor profile: ripe black plum, warm crushed rock, vanilla, and white pepper


Prominent critics have described our Syrah as reminiscent of the great wines of Hermitage. Our 2009 Syrah exhibits great varietal character and combines a classic Rhone flavor profile with the richness of California. This wine is a reference point for New World Syrah.

Tasting Notes
A nose of black fruit and spice is an introduction to the mélange of ripe black plum, warm crushed rock, vanilla, and pepper. As always this wine was barrel fermented and aged for 20 months in 100% new French oak barrels with minimal racking and the use of nitrogen to protect the wine during racking lets us to keep the wine in barrel longer. This allows for better integration of oak and fruit without losing the brightness of the wine.
Vineyard Notes
The 2009 Flanagan Syrah is a true triumph for us. The end of vintage saw heavy rains followed by lots of heat. By making a super strict selection we were able to craft a very good wine. Our 2009 Syrah displays great varietal character. It has the characteristic rich purple color and expressive nose that we always get from our Bennett Valley Estate. Past vintages have typically been described by critics as reminiscent of Hermitage in the Northern Rhône and this vintage continues true express the classic Rhône profile.
