Our 2009 Drouthy Neebors Syrah has incredible pedigree; 50% from Saralee's Trenton Station vineyard in Russian River, 44% from the Dry Stack vineyard in Bennett Valley and 6% from the Judge Family vineyard in Bennett Valley. All cold weather sources, which result in a beautifully balanced wine with minerality from Trenton Station, fruit from Dry Stack and spice from Judge. A fantastic combination!
