Our 2008 Grigsby Vineyard Syrah is a pure, concentrated expression of ripe Syrah fruit. The overall impression is that the wine's dense, rich purple color aptly conveys its personality: this is a deep, extracted, intense example of Syrah.
At Rocca Family Vineyards, we believe deeply that all great wines are made in the vineyard. Our winemaker, Paul Colantuoni, and vineyard manager Sergio Melgoza work very closely together, taking tremendous care to ensure that our vineyards produce grapes of the highest possible quality.
True to the flavors of this vineyard, the 2005 Syrah shows smokey cherry and wild plum aromas, with a touch of dried lavender and nutmeg. An amazing example of how "bottle time" brings elegance, balance and complexity to our Syrahs.
