Syrah Vivio Vineyard, 2014

Produced by Bee Hunter Wine

"On the nose. A lot of spice, darker fruit, spicy fig compote, Indian blood peach, stone fruits, lots of wet slate. Mouth is tight and structured, elegant, lots of fruit up front, ripe black currant, cassis. More white pepper than black pepper. Long and savory finish with tobacco. " - Andy's notes

What's cool?

Soil That Matters

The Bennett Valley in southern Sonoma, next to Sonoma Mountain, is known by the locals for producing exquisite Syrah. This vineyard (previously owned by Joe Vivio) is planted on a bed of red volcanic soil. It is the last to warm up and the first to cool down, making it a prime location for Syrah. Just like all our Mendocino vineyards we source from, Vivio is sustainably farmed.
