"Hand harvested whole clusters that were cold soaked and fermented in small, open top bins that were punched down twice daily through fermentation and gently basket pressed. This wine is barrel aged for 20 months in French and American oak. Bottled on June 20, 2007, the Sonoma County Syrah was released in June 2008."
"This wine is all about richness- deep luscious plum, blueberry and dark cherry fruit with dark earth, expresso, chocolate and scrumptious baking spices. This is a tremendously giving Syrah. Its big fruit and flavors meet eye to eye with generous alcohol and just the right amount of acidity to make this wine a truly unforgettable sipping experience." -Winery

"Kevin also has a driving passion for wine. He and his wife, Debra, opened the Adobe Road Winery in southern Sonoma County to create wines that capture the essence of the vineyard. 'We work hard to make sure each bottle of Adobe Road wine is handcrafted to showcase the best of each individual vineyard in each appellation we make wine from,' says Kevin. 'We choose the best parts of Sonoma and Napa Valley for our elite Cabernet Sauvignons, Dry Creek for our hedonistically rich Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc, the Russian River and Petaluma Gap for our ethereal Pinot Noirs and lavishly flavored yet sleek Chardonnay.'" -Winery
