Syrah is a Persian Blue elixir teeming with flavors and textures that are well beyond the reach of all other varieties. As the world’s most persuasive grape, Syrah can produce hypnotic wines from myriad of exotic addresses around the globe. It is the one variety that embodies both animal and mineral. At Io, we take Syrah (and its Rhone siblings) very seriously. We plant, farm, harvest and vinify grapes from cool-climate, maritime sites on California’s Central Coast (primarily the Santa Maria Bench) to craft select lots that are dense, intense and pure – Description from jessicatrujillo
