2008 Suscol Ranch Syrah
Rancho Suscol was part of a Mexican land grant to General Vallejo in 1843, and later populated by the Patwin tribe. The region is cool and influenced by the San Pablo Bay. These conditions help create mature flavors and balance in the remarkable Syrah from a very historic property.
