Lost Canyon Syrah Russian River Valley Trenton Station Vineyard 2005
Winemaker Tasting Notes: This vineyard is owned by Saralee Kunde. The vineyard is a hillside vineyard of 46 acres with the majority planted to Syrah. Like most vineyards in the Russian River the combination of fog, gentle breezes, and warm afternoons allow the grapes to slowly ripen until the flavors are intense and ready to be picked. This wine is very dark purple. It has a great burst of blackberry fruit mixed with leather and meat. It has a luscious mouth feel and lasting finish. The wine is one that can be savored all evening by itself or with fine meats and pasta. We produced less than 210 cases of this wine.
