Pianetta’s 2004 Syrah was produced from the family’s estate vineyard, Pianetta Vineyards, in Monterey County, California. The vineyard is part of a 95-acre ranch seven miles north of San Miguel above the Big Sandy River in Indian Valley. Its growing conditions are ideal for hearty red grape varietals, and Pianetta’s Syrahs have become known for their intense, bold flavors.

The Pianetta 2004 Syrah was awarded 4 Silver Medals, including a Silver Medal at the Monterey Fair Wine Challenge, a Silver Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition, a Silver Medal at the Riverside International Wine Competition and a Silver Medal at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition.

Deep and dense, this is a mouth-filling wine is loaded with chewy black cherry and dark plum, earthy flavors, wrapped around spice and smoky accents. On the palate, the wine is well balanced with a long and velvety finish. Drinkable now, this wine will nevertheless mature gracefully over the next 5 years as the generous tannins soften.
