Sadly, there is no 2010 De Angelis Wines Syrah. We decided that 2010 was not the year to make additional Syrah, so we passed and made Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. We still love to make Syrah and blend it with Grenache, but that was just not possible in 2010!
De Angelis Wine anticipates that this wine will be bottled in mid-February 2013. Anticipated Release date is August-September 2013. At the moment, this wine is resting nicely in French oak barrels, and is doing its thing – aging! We check it out every month or so, top it, add sulfur when called for, and make sure this wine is still developing as we intend. We often think about how good we will feel once it is bottled and ready for prime time.
Coming – But Not So Soon!
This De Angelis Wine was bottled in mid-February of 2011. A limited release occurred in August 2011. We decided to release the wine to the general public when we launch our new web site – This one! This is a 13.9% alcohol wine, and again brings flavor, balance, and finish to a this varietal.Some of the complexity is due to the addition of a small amount (10.5%) of Grenache. This blend has been offered since being originally introduced into our Syrahs in 2007. Pair this with any beef, lamb or veal dish, as well as with flavorful pasta dishes.
We are very proud of this wine, and even more proud that we bring it to you at such a reasonable price point.

This Syrah was made of fruit grown on the West side of Paso Robles in a vineyard known for its excellent farming practices. It is a bit more extracted than the 2006 Syrah, but not much. The alcohol is 14.35%, and the wine is perfectly balanced relative to acidity, tannins, and flavor and color. 2007 was the first year we blended a git of Grenache into our Syrah. That added a strawberry finish to the wine, and made it easy to drink, yet a perfect accompaniment for many dishes. There is not much of this wine left. for those who enjoy a perfectly balanced Syrah with a meal, this is the wine of the moment.
Our 2006 Syrah differed from most Syrahs produced on the Central Coast of California. Those who pursued this variety, found few brands that did not offer 15-17% alcohol levels in highly extracted products. Some were very good, and some were simply highly alcoholic wines! We decided to make a wine reminiscent of the French Syrahs found in the Burgundy region. We did that, and the 2006 De Angelis Syrah was a 13.1% alcohol wine, lighter in color than most Syrahs on the market at the time it was released, balanced, and complex with a long smooth finish. Unfortunately except for a very few Library cases it is gone.
