Located in the southwestern foothills of Sonoma Valley in the cool Carneros region, this Syrah from a single parcel of the highly-acclaimed Durell Vineyard was planted in 1999. Chateau St. Jean made its first single-vineyard Syrah from the Durell Vineyard with the 2002 vintage.
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Syrah Durell Vineyard has a crushed black berry and black currant nose with hints of licorice, earth, cracked peppered, tar and espresso. Medium to full-bodied, the rich, opulent palate is matched with lovely freshness, with soft, rounded tannins and a long, spicy finish." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The Wine Advocate, October 2017
