Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

From the glass, our 2017 Russian River Valley Syrah features alluring aromas of fresh dark fruits complemented by notes of herbs and smoked meat. 

Palate: 

On the palate, luscious flavors of raspberry, plum and cherry are balance with earthy notes of mushroom, star anise and a light oak finish. This medium bodied wine offers a rich mouthfeel, well integrated tannins and a pleasant finish.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

At DeLoach Vineyards we strive to produce distinctive wines that spotlight unique terroirs in a socially and environmentally responsible way. We practice sustainable viticulture and utilize minimally intrusive winemaking techniques that lets the terroir shine through in each wine we craft. The 2017 vintage across California was a classic growing season. A strong winter and rains led to a steady growth in the vineyards and a warm August accelerated acidity and provided intensity to the resulting wines.
