2008 Azari Syrah Sonoma Coast 

Winemakers Notes

Sour black Cherry, fig and cigar dominate the mouth of this wine.  Currants cured olives and aged meat awaken the olfactory system when this Shiraz is left to breathe in the glass for a moment. The patient wine patron will benefit greatly with this slow maturing cool climate Syrah.

The Vineyard

100% Estate Azari Vineyard. Located 5 miles west of the town Petaluma.  This Rocky Vineyard site is planted with 887 and Syrah noir clones.

Harvest 2008

2008 provided very concentrated, flavorful wines that express the vineyards in which they were grown, despite being a difficult year for growing. Springtime frosts and cold rains lead to a lighter than average year. This is truly a vintage for the cellar, with great aging potential for years to come.
