Our Wines

Parmelee-Hill Vineyards decided in 2001 to begin making a limited amount of high-end syrah under our own label. We have since added other wine varieties. To make the type of wine we wanted meant sourcing a winemaker of the highest caliber to help achieve our stylistic goals. We found him in Don Van Staaveren of Chateau St. Jean fame and Don continues to help and advise in the making of every Parmelee-Hill wine.

2009 NIGHT CAP Syrah Port
20% alcohol, but does not taste hot. Just try it with “smoors” around a campfire and you will fall in love with this wine. Very dark, inky, deep purple tints. Ripe, heady dried fruit, jammy, porty, black raspberry, wiff of violets, nutty aromas. On the palate it's juicy, syraupy with loads of ripe red and black berry fruit, followed by cinnamon and sweet spices, wrapped in a hint of creamy oak. The finish is long, viscous, plush and silky.
