Ask a winemaker the conditions under which they would like to plant grapes for their dream wine, and they will point you toward a climate that sits right on the edge of getting their preferred varietal of grape ripe. This allows the fruit to hang on the vine late into the season, accumulating more and more flavor elements prior to reaching the threshold sugar content requiring the fruit to be harvested.

The grape varietal possessing this “on-the-edge” profile at our Belden Barns site is Syrah. In fact, the Bennett Valley side of Sonoma Mountain has built a cult-like following from Rhone wine enthusiasts – particularly those whose palate migrate to Northern Rhone. 

The “Biggest” wine in our portfolio, our 2019 Estate Syrah spent 28 months in barrel to achieve the balance we desire. Owning the varietal’s inky and sultry characteristics while maintaining a good bit of verve, this wine is a great alternative for those wanting a wine with substantial heft, but enough freshness to have you coming back for more.

94 | Dark fruit, oak, chocolate and rich plum. Good length.

87 | slightly OR (Over Ripe), stewy fruit, tannic edge, mineral palate, dusty finish

97 | Saturated colour; shy nose; black olive/oak, latent spices; solid FB, concentrated yet quite elegant wine. Compact, deep, lots of potential here. Tautly coiled.

93 | Nose is super ripe but has lost a degree of varietal character - a big, bold black fruited aroma rather than good varietal definition. Carries the alcohol well - a massive bold wine - but perhaps at the expense of poise and freshness.
