2018 Puppione Family Wines “Ariya” Syrah Russian River ValleyCalifornia, USA
From the winemaker Chris Puppione.....
Just as our daughter experimented and tested in her first year so did we as newly minted winemakers, deciding to craft the 2018 Ariya Syrah with decidedly Old World approach. The resulting wine displays vivacity and the signature aroma/flavors that make cool-climate Syrah so entrancing.
Boasting both elegance and verve, this wine pairs perfectly with smoked eggplant, grilled lamb chops, Carolina BBQ pork sliders, or Osso buco.
We launched our winery with two barrels to commemorate the birth of our daughter, and we continue to chronicle our family story of traditional and togetherness one bottle at a time.
