Flavor profile: black and blue fruits, vanilla, spice, savory notes


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

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2012 Syrah reflects the warm, ripe character of the vintage. It was a great year to grow Syrah in a cool site! The nose shows tantalizing floral notes accompanied by hints of vanilla and spice. On the palate the wine is generous, balanced, and lush with black and blue fruits, spice, and savory game notes. Think of a roast venison loin with a hint of salt and pepper and a cassis reduction. This is another stunning example of the heights which well-made, ripe, cool climate California Syrah can attain. As always we barrel fermented our Syrah and age it in 100% new French oak.
Vineyard Notes
Bennett Valley is rapidly becoming renowned for the quality of its Syrah. The grapes for our 2012 Flanagan Syrah come from the steep hillsides of Bennett Mountain in one of the warmest and rockiest sites in Bennett Valley. The site enjoys a predominantly southwest aspect, slopes averaging up to 35%, red volcanic soils, and powerful upslope maritime winds from the Petaluma Gap. Many people feel both the wine and the vineyard are reminiscent of the great Hermitage region in the Rhone Valley. This wine extends the winning streak of Flanagan Syrah.
