Benefiting from the high elevation (2500+ feet) and the well-drained rich soils of the Sierra Foothills is the Perry Creek 2005 Syrah, with well-ripened tannins and a unique combination of fruit and spiciness not found in many California Syrahs.
The 2005 Syrah has garnered a notable collection of medals in recent wine competitions, including a Gold Medal from the Riverside International Wine Competition, a Gold Medal from the Lodi International Wine Awards, a Silver Medal from the Taster’s Guild Awards, and a second Silver Medal from the Best of Appellation Competition.
After maturing in oak barrels for several months, the Perry Creek Syrah exhibits a creamy, toasty texture which blends well with the rare complexity of spicy fruit flavors. Blackberries, cinnamon, and black olive notes are followed by an earthy tobacco essence and smooth, toasty vanilla flavors on the finish.
Try pairing the Perry Creek 2005 Syrah with sautéed eggplant pasta, lamb chops, and your favorite casseroles.
