Donelan Syrah Russian River Valley Walker Vine Hill 2009
Well contained fruit bomb. My white wine drinking neighbor had a glass and fell in love with Donelan. While this is young and ripe, a nice long decant does the trick and it opens up like a flower within 30 minutes.Add winemaker's notes
Leave the pretense at the door. Small warehouse winery intermingled with a few other brands, a custom crush facility and a wine storage business. Just putting out stellar wines year after year starting out as PAX and now evolving with a new winemaker into Donelan Family wines. Very personable staff and a hands on owner in Joe Donelan who spends much of his time calling customers on the phone to thank them for drinking his wines.
