2019 Valenti Ranch Syrah

Add To Cart
$65.00 per Bottle

Six miles from the ocean on a mid elevation windswept east facing slope at 1,300 -1400 feet, the Valenti Ranch produces a very distinctive cool climate Syrah. The constant maritime winds coupled with thin marginal soils of oceanic sedimentary origins, lends itself to a leaner style of Syrah of incredible purity and transparency. Made in the tradition of the northern Rhone, co fermenting a small percentage of Viognier for some aromatic lift. The nose immediately reminds of a classic cool climate Syrah with distinctive cracked pepper notes, blue and black fruits, game, white pepper, black tea and purple violets . This very aromatic, intensely flavored Syrah will pair beautifully with leg of lamb or a grilled steak with herbed mashed potatoes. While this wine is showing beautifully right now, be sure to keep a few bottles in your cellar for the long haul as your patience will be rewarded.
