Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A fresh floral and fruit bouquet of lavender, blueberry and raspberry with herbaceous notes of tobacco leaf and dried basil. The palate has an intriguing prosciutto note with black currant and black tea, and finishes with a fresh, light mouthfeel and mouthwatering acidity.
Vineyard Notes
The Vivio vineyard is situated in a cooler part of the Bennett Valley appellation. The vineyard is planted to 3 clones of Syrah, 174, 470 and 877, which accentuates complexity in the wine. The Viognier is from the Gregori vineyard in Russian River.
Production Notes
The barrels of Syrah were selected from the Vivio vineyard and blended with a small percentage of Viognier from the Gregori vineyard. The resulting wine was aged in neutral oak for a further 12 months before bottling.
Winemaker Notes
This wine is in hommage to the beautiful wines from the Cote Rotie region in the northern Rhone in France. I tasted through my Syrah barrels and selected two barrels from the Vivio vineyard in Bennett valley to blend with Viognier from Gregori Vineyard in Russian River. The flavor profile of this wine is intriguing and wildly different from the 2019 Bonnie Glen, which is essentially the same wine without the Viognier. The wine shows the classic Cote Rotie notes with the elevated fruit and floral notes and offers a fun comparison.
