Forget what you thought you heard about Shiraz. If you love full-bodied reds laden with ripe fruit flavors and hints of leather, earth, and tobacco, then this wine is definitely worth a go – and the budget-friendly price makes it all the sweeter.
Hand-harvested and unfined/unfiltered.
Delicious Rhône Valley Syrah at this price? You bet. As wines from the more prominent appellations continue to rise, seek out bottles from the Collines Rhodaniennes. These wines are fresh, fruit-driven, and much more approachable in their youth.
Sustainable farming practice (lutte raisonnée), native yeast fermentation, unfined & lightly filtered.
Surrounded by the towering redwoods, ocean air, and rich soil – The Lester Family Vineyard is a true expression of Santa Cruz Mountains and bohemians that care for this acclaimed plot of Syrah vines. All land is sustainably farmed and hand cultivated. Vineyard teams dropped fruit to keep flavors concentrated.
A “wine drinkers rosé” – Vibrant fruit, layered complexity, with a balanced acidity that leaves a long finish.
Direct Press, natively fermented, 100% steel barrel aged.
This organic, cool-climate Syrah was handmade by Chase Carhartt in conjunction with Nathalia and Hannes Storm (of Storm Wines) in the heart of South Africa’s Western Cape. The wine is supple, medium bodied, and best enjoyed with a slight chill. Drink now or lay down for the next 5-10 years.
An Argaux exclusive – you won’t find this wine anywhere else! Only 100 cases produced.
Cold climate Syrah – like Peay Syrah – is really something that pairs well with food. It is fruit-driven and muscular, however, its refreshing acidity and brightness gives the wine grace and elegance.
Certified organic farming practices, woman-winemaker, and less than 300 cases produced.
This tasty Syrah’s palate is rich, ripe, and finishes dry with very smooth tannins and nice acidity. Biodynamic farming practices, no fining or filtering, only 125 cases produced.
The rolling hills of Slide Hill are situated 7 miles from the Pacific Ocean, where cool temperatures ensure a long growing season.
A deeply colored, rich Syrah from the most northern appellation in the Rhone Valley. The palate is full of sappy black fruit, olives, and sweet baking spice on the finish. The tannins are soft and the wine does well with a 30 minute decant before consuming.
Lovely half bottle for quiet night with a steak or a burger.
