Gallo of Sonoma Reserve Syrah, Sonoma County, 2002

Alc. 13.7% by vol. Gold medal. Best American Winery. Best of class. Winery of the Year. Winery Awards of distinction. Rich and opulent, our 2002 first vintage Sonoma County Syrah displays intense aromas of cassis, black pepper spice, and dark berry fruit. Dark cherry, earthy and spicy flavors are supported by broad tannins and finish with lingering nuances of smoke and vanilla. Balanced and fruit forward, this wine is the perfect complement to prime rib, steak, and venison. Our guiding principle remains the same as it was for our grandparents: Make each vintage better than the last. We trust you will enjoy our wine as much as we've enjoyed making it.
