Sobon's Syrah is from one of the winery's oldest plantings, one that is organically farmed and lightly cropped. The resulting wine, which includes small percentages of Zinfandel (6%), the winery's specialty, as well as Petite Sirah (2%) and Grenache (2%), is more on the savory meat and cooked plums end of the Syrah spectrum, with a silky texture. The wine falls a tad flat on the finish.
