Syrah is a beautiful varietal and one of our favorites. Like
Grenache, Syrah has made its way around the world.
At the Alonso Family Vineyard, Syrah makes a gorgeous,
earthy style wine with a vibrant purple hue. Like our Tannat,
Syrah is the only other wine that we ferment 100% whole
cluster, stems and all. To get fermentation going, we jump in
the bins (or ask our friends to do it) and just stomp around. It’s
so much fun, and fermenting on the stems in the old style
gives the wine a great mouth feel and solid structure.
