Editorial Reviews for Kokomo Syrah Dry Creek Valley Green Pastures
Aromatic and intense with mineral and cracker pepper notes vying for attention at first. The fruit is dark and deep and a touch roasted with backing wood sweetness and spice. On entry, this starts off deceptively matte but then really explodes on the palate with flavors that seem to belong to a richer, heavier wine. It’s not a meek wine by any stretch, but it’s rich, and deep and intensely aromatic in the mouth with a decidedly stern note on the back-end that slaps away that sappy fruit and imposes a bit of mineral, oak, and spice induced discipline that caries through to the moderately long if slightly hot finish. An intense and finely balanced Syrah that will benefit from 2-4 years in the cellar. 91pts

External Reviews for Kokomo Syrah Dry Creek Valley Green Pastures
Aromas of crushed berry, succulent wildberry, violets, and loads of white pepper character that turns to a sweet ripeness, folding together in a seamless presentation. The finish is long and lingering with hints of blueberry, pink grapefruit, and a distinctive minerality. A magnificent wine that screams, "Rhone!”.
Once again, the 2006 Green Pastures Syrah was the last fruit to be brought in for the season. We decided to use a native strain of yeast from Dry Creek Valley, isolated from a Rockpile vineyard, that brought out much more of the varietal's true Rhone character and distinct terroir. Aromas of crushed berry, violets, white pepper and bacon fat fill the palate. The finish is long and lingering, with hints of blueberry and a distinctive minerality. A magnificent wine that screams, "Rhone!" Enjoy now or it can be cellared for 7-10 years. Pairs well with wild game, beef stew or rack of lamb.
