Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Atoosa’s Syrah opens with pretty floral aromas of sweet violet and pine needles. The ripe, juicy currant and berry notes lead to a spicy finish of bergamot, chervil and a hint of menthol maintain the freshness. Softening tannins and integrated acidity give this wine a supple refreshing mouthfeel.
Vineyard Notes
This is the last vineyard to be picked most years due to its location west of Santa Rosa in Russian River Valley. The heavy layer of fog helps maintain a fresh wine profile and deep red hue. The vineyard is planted to four different clones of Syrah, which add layers of complexity to the wine.
Winemaker Notes
The vineyard was harvested in late September. The juice was on the skins for 14 days during fermentation prior to being pressed off to tank to begin malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked to 100% French oak barrels before aging for 14 months and bottling unfiltered and unfined.
Food Pairing Notes
Lighter dishes such as grilled salmon with white pepper and herbes de Provence, or grilled flank steak with seasoned fingerling potatoes.
