SILVER - NCW WINE AWARDS
Grown in what I think is one of the best locations for Syrah, this wine is deep in color and full in body. Aged in American oak, this wine opens with aromas of blueberries and coffee, and finishes with flavors of clove and bittersweet chocolate. Although wonderful by itself, this Syrah is a big wine and needs big pairings. I would suggest fattier meats and more tender cuts like grilled New York strip or ribeye steak, grilled lamb chops, or even a Bratwurst sausage.

GOLD - NCW WINE AWARDS
Inky-rich with aromas of slightly reductive dark fruits, charred oak and a touch of pepper and spice. Pair with heavy meats and grilled food.

BRONZE - NCW WINE AWARDS
A dark, full-bodied wine that opens with aromas of jammy blueberry and blackberry. Nice weight and richness, with a clove and bittersweet chocolate finish. Enjoy with lamb, sausage and grilled meats.
