Rational Exuberance

It'll make you feel vivacious, zippy, eager, fertile, riotous, brash, cheerful, and passionate! And verbose.

When Canihan Family Cellars created a Syrah full of abandon, ardor, and buoyancy, they wondered what to name it. What word could capture the cheerfulness, eagerness, ebullience, and energy of its ripe cherry, berry, and cedar nose? How to convey, in a few short syllables, the excitement, exhilaration, and fervor of its ripe fig and black currant flavors?

Then it came to them: Exuberance.

It's a name redolent of all the friskiness, fulsomeness, lavishness, liveliness, luxuriance, pep, spirit, sprightliness, vigor, vitality, zap, zest, and zip you'll find inside the bottle. And inside our thesaurus.

2009 Exuberance Syrah, Sonoma Valley 750ml 2-Pack

The 2009 Exuberance Syrah has a dark red, almost garnet hue with bright red on the rim. Ripe cherry with floral accented berry and cedar on the nose with hints of dried rose petal and sweet oak. Lovely entry that leads into a savory mid palate. Ripe fig and black currant dominate the finish with a breadth of soft, well integrated tannins.
Pair with venison, roast duck or wild game.

Exuberance describes Canihan Family Cellars' emotions upon learning that their first vintage of Syrah was judged by 47 judges to be the best red wine from more than 4,300 wines in the 2007 San Francisco International Wine Competition. Great wines originate in the vineyard, and the cool climate of the Sonoma Valley certified organic vineyard results in an exceptionally elegant Syrah.  Back-to-back Gold & Double Gold medals have proven that their dry-farming and meticulous organic vineyard management, along with minimalist winemaking philosophy result in exceptional wines expressive of the terroir.

Vineyard Notes: Located on the border of the Sonoma Valley and Los Carneros appellations, planted in 1998 with FPMS Clone 1 on SO4 and 101-14 rootstock, this 3.4-acre vineyard produces a cool-climate Syrah. Phil Coturri’s and Ned Hill’s dry-farming, pruning techniques and biodynamic vineyard management practices result in low yields of less than 1.5 tons per acre. The vineyard is certified organic by CCOF.

Canihan Family Cellars

The Canihan Family
Sonoma Valley

The Canihan Family produces award-winning Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc from our certified organic estate vineyards in the heart of the Sonoma Valley.

The Canihan Family vineyards are ideally located in the Sonoma Valley, and because we border on the Los Carneros Appellation, the vineyards receive the cool evening breezes and frequent fog from San Francisco Bay that provide for perfect grape growing conditions.

Organic vineyard management practices, dry-farming, hand-harvesting only at complete ripeness, fermentation with naturally occurring native yeast, and no fining or filtering result in flavorful wines expressive of our “terroir”. Our commitment to elegant and flavorful wine is also evidenced by our low yields, which never exceed two tons per acre.

We are thrilled that our first wine produced was judged by 47 judges over three days and awarded “Best of Show Red Wine” from over 4,300 wines at the prestigious 2007 San Francisco International Wine Competition.
