This intensely flavored Syrah won a Gold Medal at the 2007 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. Winemaker Bruce McGuire sources Syrah from three vineyard sites in the Santa Ynez Valley, the cool-climate Lafond Vineyard, the neighboring Hill Top Ranch and the warm climate Joughin Vineyard. The resulting wine shows concentrated black fruit flavors and white pepper notes. My notes: A hefty bfll-bodied palate whacker!

Syrah food pairings: BBQ ribs, rack of lamb, grilled steaks.
