2016 Scavenger Syrah

$49.00

Rob Schermeister crafted this full-bodied and intensely aromatic Syrah in the traditional Rhone technique by co-fermenting 93% Syrah fruit with 7% Viognier fruit. The result is an explosion of aroma and flavor right out of the glass, thanks to the compounds in Viognier that hold on to color and other characteristics of this Lower Sierra Foothills fruit. To give back to a worthy cause, we’re donating 20% of all profits to International Bird Rescue.

If you’re pairing this with food, try a dark chocolate raspberry or tiramisu truffle. It’s divine!
