Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lovely violet and lavender notes lift the wine out of the glass, and the palate commingles dark berries with a beautiful spice bouquet of black pepper, thyme, sage and clove. Timbervine Ranch brings forth the exciting wild side of Syrah, with layers of complexity and a silky mouthfeel.
Vineyard Notes
Located in the cooler, western side of Russian River Valley, the beautifully wild Timbervine Ranch sits high up in the hills, hidden from view by an old-growth redwood forest. The vineyard was originally planted in the early 1980s on a very steep site, helping soil drainage and concentrating the fruit.
Winemaker Notes
The vineyard was harvested in late September. The juice was on the skins for 16 days during fermentation prior to being pressed off to tank to begin malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked to 100% French oak barrels before aging for 14 months and bottling unfiltered and unfined.
Food Pairing Notes
Aged blue cheese, grilled meats seasoned with your favorite rub, and wild game with sautéed mushrooms and polenta.
