Food Pairings for Broman Cellars Syrah Napa Valley
This wine flies under the radar, but it is a beast! This 9 year old beauty has characteristics of an aged wine, and a young wine at the same time. It's a deep purple color, similar to a petite sirah, and hasn't faded to that aged 'brown' red at all. It's still slightly tannic, yet very fruit forward. It can be paired with a hearty steak, or a tangy bbq. It's also approachable enough to be a cocktail....at least for me, it is. :)
About This Wine: Blueberry, bright cherry and spicy aromas and flavors combine with leathery, meaty undertones give this wine great complexity and versatility. Ripe, full-bodied and a never-ending finish are prime characteristics of the Broman Syrah. This wine is perfect for game or the grill!<br/><br/> This 2002 Broman Napa Valley Syrah was produced from grapes from the highly-regarded Page Nord Vineyard as well as the Rigi Vineyard, both in the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley. This area is known as a “sweet-spot” for Napa Valley Syrah. This 100% Syrah was aged in French oak for approximately 24 months.<br/><br/> About The Winery: Broman Cellars is a small, family operation located in the heart of the Napa Valley. Renowned winemaker Bob Broman creates our small lots of handcrafted wines exclusively from Napa Valley grapes. We have long term contracts with several highly acclaimed vineyards. Our Cabernet comes from Beckstoffer's Dr. Crane Vineyard in St. Helena and Georges III in Rutherford; and our Sauvignon Blanc from the Melrose Vineyard in Rutherford. Our Syrah is harvested from the Page Nord vineyard in North Napa. We have also just planted a small, two-acre vineyard in St. Helena on our Deer Park Road property, which is below the Howell Mountain appellation boundary on the western facing slope.

It's who he is and what he does, all day, every day.<br/><br/> He has made wine for Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Concannon Vineyards, St. Supery, Guenoc and has traveled the world doing international consulting. So, it's no surprise that after making wine for other folks for 31 years, Bob would realize his life long dream of making his own Napa Valley wines, appropriately labeled, Broman Cellars. The inaugural release wasa beautiful 1994 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon consisting of an entire 150 cases. Today, production is just over a whopping 1,000 cases consisting of small, ultra premium, handcrafted lots of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon Blanc. The goal of Broman Cellars is to never grow beyond 7,500 cases… Small enough that Bob can continue to pay individual attention to the wines. Together with his wife, Deborah Russell Broman, they have purchased 11 ½ acres with a home in St. Helena on Deer Park Road where they intend to build their winery. In the interim, they are remodeling the home and are tending to their newly planted Cabernet vineyard.<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Alchohol:</strong> 13.8%<br/><br/> <strong>Production:</strong> 343 Cases<br/><br/>
