Winemaker's Notes:

Grape Varietal: Syrah

Our Smoking Loon Syrah has a dense, juicy nose of wild strawberry and raspberry aromatics with hints of baking spices. On the palate, reduced berry compote flavors are bold and mouth-filling, contrasted by rich brown sugar notes from French oak aging. Cinnamon and nutmeg nuances emerge on the mid-palate with silky tannins. The finish is very long, with a trace of lingering vanilla and blackberry. With concentrated flavors usually reserved for much heavier wines, this medium-bodied Syrah has a subtle, mouth-watering tartness that makes this an extremely food-friendly, balanced wine. Our Smoking Loon Syrah is a perennial fan favorite. Made in a balanced, fruit-forward style, this Syrah makes you wonder why people don't drink more of this classic varietal. The balance of fruit flavor, light, fresh acidity, and smooth tannin structure pairs well with baby back ribs, Italian sausage lasagna, or a gourmet sourdough grilled cheese .
