2017 Red Aero Port, Sonoma Mountain
The Syrah for this port-style wine is grown at an elevation of 800 ft on a very steep, east-facing slope of Sonoma Mountain. The location combined, with the vintage, allowed for slow ripening resulting in elegance in the bottle.
Seductive aromatics of black cherry, muddled raspberry and violets are supported by notes of clove and subtle oak. Lingering flavors of black current, blood orange and marionberry are captivating and met with a touch of cedar. Elegant with balanced sweetness, this Syrah port-style wine is delightful paired with bleu cheese, salted nuts or dark chocolate.
