Christopher Creek Syrah Russian River Valley Reserve 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

A perennial favorite, our limited production Petite Sirah Port is produced from grapes grown on vines located on our estate vineyard. the 2008 Port is a full-bodied wine layered with blueberry/blackberry fruit with a hint of chocolate. The fruit was harvested in late October at the early stages of raisining when the rich, dark berry characters develop. About three-fourths of the way through fermentation, the wine is "knocked" with aged Germain-Robin brandy to halt the fermentation and preserve the residual grape sugar. The bottles are hand-dipped to protect the natural cord closure. A perfect wine for after dinner with cheese or chocolate or for sipping in front of the fire on a cold wintry evening.

Really yummy, verging on decadent. Little pricey for what it is though.
