Hyde de Villaine takes the name 'Californio' as tribute to the early California settlers, or Californios, who brought Old World sophistication and elegance to the western shores of the New World.  As decedents of the early Californios, the Hyde and de Villaine families strive to produce a Syrah that highlights one of California’s premier growing sites, Hyde Vineyard, while embodying the elegance of the families’ Old World heritage.


The Hyde de Villaine Californio Syrah is an opaque ruby colour. Aromas of Asian spices and floral notes are mixed with black fruit and pepper. The texture is mineral driven paired with soft and elegant tannins, a trademark of the Hyde de Villaine Syrah. The concentration and density exhibit the complexity Hyde Vineyard has to offer where a cooler climate provides a retrained opulence. The wine finishes with lovely spice and fresh fruit notes with considerable length.
