The Winery

Donelan

Donelan Family Wines is a boutique winery, with vineyards located all throughout Sonoma. This family owned winery produces a delicious variety of wines such as Syrah, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Chardonnay, and Viognier. Despite this list, the star of the show is Syrah. This small family vineyard puts the grape and what it can give to man as its priority, which is an inspiration to most winemakers in California.

Tasting Notes

WA98
Produced using 80% whole cluster and aged for 28 months in French oak, 33% new, the 2013 Syrah Richard`s Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color and a wonderfully meaty/earthy nose of prosciutto, underbrush and tapenade with a core of crushed black currants, black cherries and tar, plus hints of Provence herbs and garrigue. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, this wine manages to have beautiful finesse with a gorgeous multi-layered palate and fine frame of rounded tannins intermingled with the chewier stem tannins to give great support, finishing long and spicy. 466 cases were made.
