Our "Reserve" line of wines are crafted by selecting and blending our favorite three barrels that show complexity and depth.
Plum, bramble fruit, oak and density come together in this exclusive Syrah Reserve wine.
Food pairing suggestions:
Roasted game, braised pork shoulder, spicy sausage, ahi tuna and salmon; sharp cheddar cheeses, blue-veined cheeses; desserts such as black forest cake and coffee-based desserts pair well.
