Château Souverain Dessert Syrah Alexander Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The Buchignani-Garcia Vineyard is located in prime Zinfandel country—at the north-end of Sonoma County’s esteemed Dry Creek Valley. The 2006 offering is deep purple-red in color with inviting aromas of wild blackberry, blueberry and white pepper. The rich, concentrated fruit carries over on the palate and mingles with notes of blackberry pie, bramble fruit and nutmeg. A year of aging in French and Hungarian oak barrels adds complexity to the wine and lifts the fruit flavors. This is an elegant Zinfandel with round tannins and gorgeous fruit aromas and flavors.
