Description

They say, “Syrah likes a view” because the best come from higher elevation vineyards with less soil, making the vines work harder, producing highly concentrated smaller grape clusters. Colson Canyon Vineyard fits the bill, with rocky soils overlooking the Santa Maria Valley’s eastern edge at a 1,400-foot elevation.

This is a big, bold red with loads of character. Layers of dark fruit aromas, violet, graphite and baking spices hit the nose right from the start. Dense and rich flavors of black plum, blackberry and dark chocolate combine with a hint of smoked meat coming through on the finish.

Pair the Colson Canyon Vineyard Syrah with bold foods. Try with a blue cheese burger, cassoulet or rosemary-crusted lamb tenderloin.
