This wine has a deep and rich dark garnet color. Hints of red and black fruits, white and black pepper, and dried herbs are tantalizing on the nose. A seamless full-bodied wine that captures savory herbs and delicate floral tones while bringing out cedar, fresh baked blueberry pie and spice. Creamy tannins with a dark chocolate finish redefines your love of Syrah.
Excellent to go with roasted duck and pan glazed Califa Syrah sauce.
We have been making wine from Chamisal Vineyard for more than forty years and, in that time, have developed an intimate knowledge of our terroir down to the blocks and rows that make up our estate. This bottling comes from sites that we consider to be our “Grand Vin” sections of the vineyard with optimal soils and clonal selections. “Califa” is the name we have bestowed on these stunning wines to distinguish them as outstanding expressions of some of our most treasured sites. Our Califa Syrah has gained a reputation for being an outstanding, intense and age-worthy wine.
