Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

($48; also from Hudson Vineyard; vinified with mostly whole clusters) Medium ruby-red. Knockout syrah aromas of black raspberry, pepper and smoked meat. Silky-smooth and highly aromatic in the mouth, with complex flavors of berries, licorice and smoked meat lifted by violet. Finishes very suave and long, with lovely lingering perfume.

About This Producer


Bruce and Barbara Neyers developed their Napa winery, centered around the 50-acre Conn Valley Ranch Estate, in 1992. This has been the source for their vineyard-designated Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot programs. Neyers' consultant, Ehren Jordan, has been involved since the beginning. Neyers is also known for reference-point Chardonnay, Syrah and Zinfandel sourced from a variety of established growers, including Tofanelli, Pato, Thieriot and Sangiacomo.

Wine Varietal: Syrah


While the rest of the world is calling it "Syrah," Australia and South Africa stick to "Shiraz," their name for the same grape. Previously it was thought that the name Shiraz originated from a city in Persia where the Syrah grape was believed to have originated. Recently U.S. and French researchers demystified the name debate when they discovered that the Syrah grape was indigenous to France. Intense, robust and sometimes referred to as "manly," Syrah grows principally in the Northern Rhone. The spicy, peppery grape also grows abundantly in Australia, South Africa, and California, where it takes on a softer, thicker character than its French version. Typical descriptors for Syrah include blackberry, dark chocolate, mint, eucalyptus, smoked meat, black pepper, liquorice, and cloves.
