Tasted with Boeuf Bourguignon. Unfortunately, the Sawi vineyard was too powerful (14.5). I like this wine, but it did not show well.

About This Producer

Winemaker Karen Culler left Mondavi to begin making her own wines in 1997. Her premiere release Syrah was one of the most sought-after wines of the vintage. Culler produces Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and a red blend named La Palette.

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.
