Food Pairings for Donelan Syrah Russian River Valley Walker Vine Hill
Dark fruit and earth on this funky wine with hints of tar and leather. Fruit is very bright and well developed, with a hint of medicine, drying tannins, and dark chocolate.

chewy and earthy with a nice kick of acidity. very CdP-eqsue. Pairs great with pork.
Splendid. I have to say that this year's line of Donelan Syrahs are extremely versatile and age worthy. I cannot say enough good things about the direction that Donelan is taking with their Syrahs.
dusty delicious tannins. This is a rich, high heat flavor bomb that tastes like a 2000 Bordeaux. I paired this with homemade beef ravioli. outstanding.
I loved this wine! These wines have the provenance of great age-ability and I was expecting it to be a bit tight, it was simply delicious - try it if you are seeking that wow factor that's more indicative of the refined elegant wines of the Rhone Valley.
