RIDGE VALLEY

MONTEREY SYRAH

Syrah is undoubtedly one of the most misunderstood grape varieties. It can produce peppery, savory wines with spicy tannins. On the other hand, there are plump, super jammy versions to choose from as well. Which is the true expression? With Ridge Valley, we borrow from both sides of Syrah’s stylistic polemic, to produce a fruit-sweet yet spicy-savory take on this classic red grape variety.
