The newly released 2005 Syrah, Paso Robles, is another one of Summerland Winery’s single varietal wines featured in their Central Coast Collection. The wines in the Collection share common traits of intense fruit plus showing distinct characteristics of the terroir from the select vineyards. The 2005 Syrah is considered a warm climate Syrah; the fruit was sourced from the well-known French Camp Vineyard in Paso Robles and the highly acclaimed Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley.

A deep red violet with a crimson rim, the 2005 Syrah displays a fresh fruit bouquet of bright blueberry, pepper and spice leading to its altogether lavish, palate-coating flavors. The spicy complexity is similar to wine you find in the famous northern Rhône appellation of Cote Rotie. Try pairing this food friendly, fruit-forward style Syrah with hearty dishes, such as roasted lamb, eggplant parmesan, grilled and smoked meats, stew, chili and robust cheeses.
