2011 Syrah

Bianchi Syrah grows on our Estate in the warm days and cool nights of Paso Robles' central upper bench-lands; an excellent mesoclimate for flavor and color development, while maintaining fruit flavors and a modicum of acid balance. VIntage 2011 was again a harvest on the late side, and as well as being cooler, we harvested grapes with ample color and flavors but at lower sugar levels. The yeasts then transformed this luscious milieu into wines of relatively lower alcohol. Each vintage brings interesting variations. To our 95% Estate Syrah we have blended in 5% of Plummer Petite Sirah. Petite gives just the right touch of forest floor earthiness and chalky tactile tannins to the more elegant Syrah blueberry/cranberry characters. On the scale of Bianchi heartiness, our Syrah comes in heavier than Pinot Noir and lighter than Petite Sirah.

Food Pairings

We often enjoy Bianchi Syrah. Oh yes, as well with several meaty food pairings. Soy Sauce marinated, braised pork belly is just one that comes to mind.
