It is a blend of Zinfandel and Syrah grapes (50/50) grown in our vineyards of Woodlands and Davis. The grapes were harvested on September 12th and blended together from the beginning. Zyrah aged for 14 months in new French oak barrels from the Allier forest in France. Unfiltered and untreated, we bottled 430 cases.
In the glass, it shows a deep-intense-vivid red color and at the nose you can clearly detect eucalyptus and rosemary notes with hints of macerated fruit. Some dusty notes of vanilla complete the flavor profile.
It tastes full-bodied with tons of volume, a mild acidity and an extra soft tannin structure.
