2018 Syrah Noriega Estate Vineyards
This full-bodied Syrah offers dense jammy blueberry flavors and hints of clove, vanilla and cocoa. Noriega Vineyards are located in the beautiful Sierra Foothills at 2400’ where the rolling hills circulate soft breezes that embrace the vineyard from early morning through the evening.
Fair Play AVA
Flat Creek Vineyards
This wine presents an immense richness, intensity and full-bodied charm with a noteworthy presentation of violets, blackberry, star anise, coffee and dark chocolate just as does the Syrah that comes from the east side of the block. The difference with the west side of the block is that it exhibits more smoked meat characteristics than the east side of the block.
Flat Creek Vinyards is on the Vista del Mirador Winery property in the Fair Play AVA and is located at the base of Mt. Aukum in Somerset, CA. where Flat Creek runs through the vineyard on the way to the Consumnes River.
