Review:

The 09 vintage is a blend of three Rogue Valley Vineyards: Meadowlark Hill, Paradox and Upper Five. All three sit above 2,000' in elevation. The higher elevation means that the grapes ripened more slowly and were exposed to more wind, making their skins thicker with more color and tannins resulting in a more aromatic Syrah. These aromas include blueberry fruit, violets and smoke. Flavors include bright boysenberry and blueberry mingled with a hint of bacon and sweet spice.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Grochau Cellars' Syrah is a hearty, rich, meaty wine, full of blackberry and black raspberry. John's Syrah is Northern Rhone in style, showing excellent balance not always found in Pacific Northwest Syrah. He included 2% Viognier grapes in the wine, and the Viognier adds a wonderful floral intensity to the scent and a hint of exotic jasmine incense to the wine. This Syrah is a crowd-pleaser right now and will improve with a few years of cellaring.

John suggests food pairings: "With Syrah I think more steaky, perhaps with some roasted mushrooms and a red wine demi glace."

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

The Grochau Cellars Syrah 06 is made from grapes harvested from vineyards in the Rogue Valley of Oregon. Upper Five Vineyard, Meadowlark Hill Vineyard, and Paradox Vineyard supplied the fruit.
