Arrowood Syrah Sonoma Valley 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Saturated red-ruby. Aromatic, musky aromas of crushed raw blue and black berries, lead pencil, spices, rose oil and eucalyptus oil. Juicy, spicy and high-pitched, with red berry and spice flavors lifted by an aromatic note of eucalyptus oil. Finishes with dusty tannins and good length. (May/Jun 2003)

The winemaking philosophy at Arrowood is simple: Produce classic varietal wines using grapes exclusively from Sonoma County's diverse viticultural areas such as Russian River Valley, Alexander and Dry Creek Valleys or Sonoma-Carneros. This approach has not changed since the winery was founded in 1986 by Richard Arrowood and his wife and partner, Alis Demers Arrowood. Richard has been making wine for more than four decades. Before founding Arrowood, he was winemaker and the first employee at Chateau St. Jean. There he produced the winery's first releases: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and a wine that may have very well put Chateau St. Jean on the map - a Select Late Harvest Riesling. Arrowood Winery opened while Richard was still the winemaker at Chateau St. Jean, and for the first three years Alis ran the winery while Richard fulfilled his obligations at Chateau St. Jean. She dragged hoses in the cellar, topped barrels and ran the bottling line. She spent weekends entertaining, giving tours and hosting wine tastings. The first Arrowood wines were released in 1988.
