About This Wine:
And Syrah represents all but 3 percent of the blend in the 2017 “Three Rivers” Red Wine from Indian Creek. The cuvee is rounded out by a dollop of Petite Sirah, which lends color and a sprinkling of spice.
Although Syrah acreage has existed in California for some time, such as the pre-Prohibition vineyards in Mendocino County, substantial plantings occurred in the 1990s. Today, as of 2016, the most acreage is in San Luis Obispo County with 2,346 acres — including Paso Robles vineyards that provided the fruit for this blend.
Winemaker Joe Otos lent his magic touch to the Indian Creek cuvee, crafting a wine that is full-bodied, rich and round, unveiling layer upon layer of fruit and spice aromas and flavors. It’s an outstanding red wine that’s a perfect companion for everything from street tacos to Santa Maria-style tri-tip.
