Peter Brehm in this year's "Grape Explorer" noted that he had a new source for Syrah and other Rhone-ish grapes (Mourvedre, etc.) out near the delta. Ridge gets its "Mataro" from around the same area. I think Brehm said the area was a little hot for really good Syrah and it probably was harvested weeks ago. Maybe he has some frozen? Look him up in the 510 phone book.
