The grapes for our 2007 Syrah come from vineyards that scale Ferrari-Carano’s Look Out Mountain in Alexander Valley. This wine has explosive aromas and flavors of Maraschino cherry, blueberry pie, vanilla bean, molasses, and spice. Lush, graceful and perfectly balanced, our Syrah has a deeply textured mid palate, supple tannins, and rich, harmonious length.
The vines for our Syrah are dry farmed in shallow, rocky, low-vigor soil on Ferrari-Carano’s Look Out Mountain. The 2007 season was characterized by low rainfall, absence of dramatic heat spikes and a cool fall. Harvest started early and quickly, then slowed to a beautiful pace due to a cool fall. The resulting hang time allowed us to craft incredible lots for this special bottling of Ferrari-Carano Syrah.
Rhonda's Recipe and Pairing NotesGrilled Butterflied Leg of Lamb
Syrah pairs wells with more flavorful foods such as game, lamb and barbecued food. Low tannin, fruity wines with little oak such as Syrah go well with Indian foods or foods with coconut, cumin, cream or milk-based sauces. Try this wine with chocolate for a delicious treat.
