Syrah or Shiraz?

Syrah or Shiraz?
By Beth P. Heiserman

When I first started at Reyes Winery in Agua Dulce, I remember trying the 2009 Syrah. It became my favorite instantly. It has such a great smokiness and is so fruit forward that I knew it would be perfect to pair with bison or lamb. I have paired this wine with everything from Sloppy Joes to a leg of lamb. Syrah is sometimes known as Shiraz. It is grown all over the world. Its dark skin…

Eve Visits Our Latest Winery Tasting Room: Reyes Winery

 

During one of the last warm days in October we took a beautiful drive through a long winding road that led us to a new winery about 30 minutes from our home in Newhall. The exterior of the winery was decorated with an expansive fountain framed by an equally expansive view of vines on three sides; on the fourth side was the winery tasting room situated between the winery itself and a modest home. Had we viewed the winery from above, we would have seen vines in all four directions, with…

2010 Cabernet Sauvignon

cab101Our 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is our second “Estate Bottled” vintage. It won a silver medal  in the LA Int’l Wine and Spirits Competition 2012 and a Bronze in Orange County Competition.   This wine has been as well received as the prior vintage. This velvety and elegant wine has light to medium tannins and a very distinct Cabernet aroma. It is well rounded with excellent balance and intensity in the mid palate and a lingering finish. Replete with ripe sweet fruit flavors of black cherries, raspberries, blackberries, and a harmonious slightly nutty taste.
