2006 Palomita Syrah
The 2006 Palomita Syrah is a 100% non-estate Syrah from Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma. It is fermented in French oak—no new barrels—for 18 months before being bottled in the spring, then bottle-aged for an additional 6 months before release. 449 cases of the 2006 Syrah were produced.
"Distinct mineral, pebble and river stone notes join wild berry, sage and savory flavors in this full-bodied, rustic effort, which ends with chunky, leathery tannins." — James Laube, Wine Spectator, 89 points
