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.
