Syrah 


Decadence defines our rich, mouthfilling Syrah. This ancient, revered grape thrives in both warm and cool climates and as a result it has earned acclaim for two distinctpersonalities: full bodied, ripe and spicy where temperatures are hotter and brooding and gamey in milder regions. Moon Mountain Vineyard’s geography is uniquely positioned to capture both. As is common in the famed Côte-Rôtie region of France’s Northern Rhôné Valley where Syrah dominates, ours co-ferments with Viognier. Co-fermenting with this decadent white grape actually makes the Syrah darker in color, and also creates lifted aromatics and a layered mouthfeel.
