Hooker Rfc Home Pitch Syrah 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Scott Harvey aged this wine for almost two years in French Oak, producing a complex, highly structured Syrah in the classic style. The wine has a bright blackberry nose, turning to vanilla bean toastiness with French Oak showing through on the palate, then deftly maneuvering to a finish of rich pecan pie. The winery recommends pairing this with grilled marinated flank steak and rosemary potatoes.

  Betsy and David Lawer, owners of Lawer Family Wines, have a true passion for wine. Their goal wasn’t just to sell their wine, but it was also to make wine that they could enjoy and take pride in creating. The Lawers bought the vineyard, a small plot located five miles northwest of Calistoga in Napa Valley, in 2002, but it required a lot of work. Thankfully, they found John Pina, their vineyard manager who was able to bring the land back to life. Lawer Family Wines produces several brands of wine, including Duck Shack, Three Coins, and Hooker. Each of these brands has a history, and the names aren’t just pulled from thin air. Three Coins, for example, was named after the work that Betsy used to do for her father, a gold miner. Thanks to Larry Levin, the winemaker for all three brands, Lawer Family Wines has been very successful at transforming the Syrah, Viognier, Cabernet Franc, and Zinfandel grapes into award-winning wines. Not only is the vineyard used to produce those grapes, but it is also used to make delicious apples. The land that the Lawers worked on was originally an apple orchard, and even with the growth and success of the vineyard, they have kept many of the trees for their own enjoyment. Read less
