    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Syrah vineyards, including the newer biodynamically-farmed Butler Ranch, which ranges upwards to 1,600 feet above sea level, are quite young, just teasing their prime growing years. You can see youth well-served in the wine's brilliant crimson color and intense, heady aromas of black cherry and blackberries before giving way to bitter-sweet, vanilla chocolate. The tannins are velvety smooth and supple. The oak is wonderfully integrated, with complementary flavors of white pepper and toasty oak spice. This is a distinctive Bonterra Syrah, more fruit-forward than previous vintages, more distinctive and unique. It's a wine I believe you'll truly enjoy!

    At Bonterra, we passionately believe that organic grapes make better wine. Bonterra has been producing wine from 100% organically-grown grapes since 1993. All of our grapes are grown using certied organic practices, such as composting, cover crops, and biodiversity. these organic practices give us grapes that oer a quality of fruit and vibrancy of taste that allow us to create wines that express the purity and intensity of each varietal's unique character. In every sip of Bonterra, you can taste our natural commitment to producing wines of great taste and excitement, which is why we believe they are among the very best wines you'll experience.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A worthy followup to the wonderful 2006. Shows equal concentration of blackberry, blueberry and licorice flavors, with a bacon and pepper savoriness that tantalizes. The structure is fine and firm, the finish dry and spicy. Drink now for sheer deliciousness. Editors' Choice.

    I liked this wine so much, I opened the second bottle after a few days. I wish I would have saved it because I could really go for one now! Very balanced and Earthy.

    Truly lovely wine -- totally organic. Very smooth. I also bought two bottes of the Bonterra Organic Cabernet...not as yummy! Truly healthy wine.

    I generally liked this wine. My wife did not. Thought it was a bit jumpy and not smooth/fruity enough for her pref of Syrah.

    Fonz note = 2/5 Not good - not bad, rustic (like a so-so Côte du Rhone). Great price.
