Syrah Umpqua Cuvée 2006

2004 Syrah Umpqua Cuvee

Winemaker Tasting Notes

Our 2006 Syrah Umpqua Cuvée is composed of fruit from our estate Fault Line Vineyards in the Umpqua and Steelhead Run in the Applegate.

Abundant black berry fruit and spice aromas and flavors are complemented by tasteful and balanced oak. This wine is mature upon release without the need for additional bottle aging.

We suggest imaginative pairings like savory arepas filled with roasted tomatoes, shredded pork, and grated Mahon cheese.
