Wow this wine is spicy.  There's plenty of cherry and strawberry but look for the pepper, coriander, oregano, hibiscus and lemongrass too. Light tannins and a spicy finish make this red perfect for the summer.

 Such a pretty smelling wine.  Blueberry jam, raspberry syrup and floral highlights are made complex with fresh oregano  spice and meaty, earthy mushrooms. The wine goes down easy wih light tannins and a fruit driven long finish.

The second oldest Syrah vineyard in the county.  Blackberry and raspberry fruit are almost upstaged by powerful dried sage and oregano spices.  Further complexity is found in minerality and peppercorns.  In the mouth you'll find medium tannins and a luscious mouthfeel.

2009 El Dorado Hill Top Syrah $20.00
This wine is made from estate fruit from a variety of exposures on the vineyard across from the tasting room.  You may notice a bit of oak in this wine which we don't typically use but we thought it would be good on this rich Syrah.  It has fruity aromatics of grapes but what really comes through is meaty barbeque sauce and soy sauce with underlying dried chiles.  In the mouth the wine has a long fruit driven finish with medium tannins.
