San Francisco International Wine Competition

August 16, 2014

This was the first year we entered any wines in the San Francisco International Wine Competition. This is a very high profile competition where our wines are judged alongside of some of the best in the world. We know the competition would be tough, but we figured we should give it a shot and Lo! and behold! we won three medals!

Our 2012 Ryan’s Red, which we are very reluctant to enter into competitions only because we have so little of it and hate to diminish salable inventory on limited productions, won bronze. Ryan’s Red is aging very nicely in the bottle, has a fruity taste and a nice, smooth mouth feel.

Our 2012 Roussanne, which won a platinum medal at the San Diego International Competition earlier in the year and was rated a 93, won bronze this time. Roussanne converted me from a 100% dry red drinker to now enjoying this dry white several times a week.

Our 2012 Syrah won a silver medal. Having tasted this Syrah against others in the same price range, I give it a gold. It is truly, gratifyingly enjoyable to drink. Sorry, I am not good at the flowery wine tasting descriptions (working on it), I just know what I like!
