Cuvée Christine Syrah 2015

The 2015 Cuvée Christine is a beautiful vintage for Syrah. This 100% Syrah blend is an intense assemblage of some of our favorite Syrah vineyards in Sonoma County.

The Kobler Vineyard provides the backdrop to this wine, with pancetta and quince on the nose and lovely acidity on the palate. The Lawer Vineyard component promotes both earthy components of peat moss and fiddleheads and a dense mid-palate. Lastly, the wine would not be complete without the addition of Steiner Ranch Syrah. Grilled meats and graphite are classic Steiner Ranch characteristics, on full display in this Cuvée Christine. This is a beautiful Cuvée Christine with great freshness on the palate and well-woven tannin and will continue to show gracefully for many years to come.
