Drew Family Wines in Decanter's Top 75 of the Year!

Congratuations to Drew Family Wines, whose Syrah "Valenti Ranch" has landed on Decanter's Most Exciting 75 Wines of the 2017! Listed at #28, this Syrah is harvested from a vineyard six miles from the ocean on a mid elevation windswept east facing ridge at 1,350-1600 feet. The constant maritime winds coupled with thin marginal soils of oceanic sedimentary origins lends itself to naturally lower yields. This translates into greater intensity at lower sugar levels and firm acid structure. The aromas immediately remind one of a traditional Northern Rhone with those distinctive cracked pepper notes.
