2015 Syrah, Twin Willows Vineyard - Russian River Valley
2015 Manzanita Creek Twin Willows Syrah, Russian River Valley
This Hermitage style Syrah has Interesting floral elements, blackberry, cherries, anise and bright red fruit aromas. Mouth-filling, full bodied with lingering sweet smokey elements. There aren’t many good examples of Syrah on the market from our region, most are very tight and and usually have a funky... almost stinky aroma. This is a well-balanced and stately wine that stands as an example of how this very versatile grape can be made into an approachable long aging wine from Sonoma County's Russian River Valley.
Fermented at very low temprature with wild and Syrah yeast strains for 18 days.
40% new French Oak, aged 23 months Sur Lie
