Kokomo Syrah Dry Creek Valley Green Pastures 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Started in 2004 with the production of a single vineyard Cabernet from Mounts Vineyard, Kokomo Winery focuses on single vineyard wines that show a distinct terroir. We believe that our small production techniques and relationships with growers allow us to make wines that are individual and unique as the vineyards they were born from. We think you should drink local and think global and we are proud to support causes we believe in located in Sonoma County, like the annual Harmony Festival, Art for Life, KRCB, Food for Thought and the annual Mayacama Celebrity Golf Tournament, just to name a few. In January 2008, we celebrated the opening of our brand new winery at Timber Crest Farms in Dry Creek Valley. Visitors to our winery will enjoy a unique wine tasting experience - we have incorporated the tasting room into our cellar. We are located on a beautiful 120 acre vineyard on the Dry Creek East Bench, and our estate fruit consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Primitivo, Muscat Blanc, and Sauvignon Blanc. Tasting Room Open Daily 11am - 4:30pm. Read less

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

A food-friendly syrah with medium white pepper notes and lots of blackberry.

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!”.
