Pianetta’s 2005 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 2005 Syrah was awarded a Gold Medal at the San Diego International Wine Competition and a Silver Medal at the West Coast Wine Competition (put on by Vineyard & Winery Management Magazine).
This wine has a deep rich color with light black cherry and dark plum aromas. Hints of light spice and smoke accent the earthy flavors. A unique and refreshing wine, the 2005 Syrah is delicate and well balanced with warm tannins and a soft mouthfeel. This wine is drinkable now and opens up nicely with decanting.
Try pairing the award-winning Pianetta 2005 Syrah with four-cheese risotto, lamb, and grilled skirt steak.
