About This Wine:
In its French homeland, the variety is typically quite easy with which to work, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. It tends to remain healthy throughout the growing season, ripens early before potentially damaging rainstorms arrive, and is resistant to mildew and rot.
That’s why it’s grown so widely, and dominates most of the Rhone’s red blends. In California, the Lodi growing region has emerged as a Syrah stronghold thanks to its sandy loam soil, hot days and cool nights — a truly utopic environment for the variety.
Indian Creek is known for crafting a reliably sublime rendition of Rhone-style blends, with Syrah providing the foundation. The 2018 vintage is quite complex, with an array of aromas and flavors complementing its primary impression of blackberry pie. It’s a jammy and juicy wine that’s the next-best thing to exploring the cellars of the Rhone.
