This intense, powerful Syrah-based wine is grown mostly on our McDowell Valley property which has a long history of championing Rhone varietals. Co-fermented with Viognier, the Syrah expresses violet, tar, and rich earth. Petite Sirah from Alexander Valley brings chewy bitter chocolate, while Grenache grown at 1400 feet elevation in the Yorkville highlands keeps the wine bright and juicy. Full-bodied and fleshy, this wine is dark and brooding yet silky and smooth.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Christo Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah Blend is composed of 60% Syrah, 22% Petite Sirah, 14% Grenache and 4% Viognier, aged for 18 months in neutral barrels. Deep garnet-purple colored, the nose reveals lifted floral notes of fragrant violets over baked black cherries and raspberry preserves, plus Chinese five spice suggestions. Bold, buxom and full-bodied, the rich fruit is offset nicely by loads of freshness, supported by rounded tannins and finishing long.
