2017 Syrah deLanda Vineyard
Our estate Syrah from the "Old Block" of our vineyard, most of these vines are over 40 years old. Each year our goal with the Full Moon Syrah is to create a cool climate expression of this region's iconic varietal.
We've held this wine back for a few years for you to enjoy. Now 4 years old, its bright fruit and herbaceousness has taken on a complex, savory quality. The feel of the Full Moon is rustic and old world. You will enjoy aromas of bay leaf, black pepper, tomato and leather making this the perfect pairing with red sauce pastas. Smokey blackberry and cherries accentuated by savory herbs and bacon fat also make this a perfect holiday pairing with turkey or mushroom stroganoff. Enjoy now ideally with a 30 minute decant.
