‘Best of Class’ high end Syrah Available

We have grapes available for the first time since our first Syrah vintage in 2003.  The Ashton Vineyard Estate Syrah has garnered over 20 Gold Medals, plus was named the Best Highest Rated Syrah of the North Coast Wine Challenge.  The wines earn Double Gold and Best of Class of all high end Syrah at the Harvest Fair.

The vineyard faces NorthEast on the slopes at the foot of Sonoma Mountain, providing a slow maturation with long hang time developing full complex flavors while maintaining well balanced acids.  The wines from these grapes, all made from our 100% Syrah have proven to age marvelously, and our 2003 continues to expand into the realm of unique tertiary  aromatics and flavors.

The vineyard has 4 clones brought in by John Caldwell from the Hermitage region in Northern Rhone, France. (This site lets us put in just one number for some reason.)

Only approximately 3 tons available, and we would like to discuss with you your vision for the wine from these fine grapes.

Call us to discuss the options for the 2017 harvest, which typically is in late October.

Call Steve at 707-228-8514.

Thank you,

Stephen Ashton, Ashton Vineyards Glen Ellen
