The wine that started it all. Oded always believed that this classic variety is suited for the cool coastal climate of the Russian River Valley. A sip is worth a thousand words. From vineyards planted in the upper-middle reach of the valley, where Syrah thrives. The wine has classic spicy notes and powerful black fruit aromas supported by a round, lush finish.
Longboard was born from the passion of Oded Shakked, surfer first, winemaker later, who brings a unique perspective to winemaking, or rather winegrowing as he prefers to call it. A key Oded insight: Surfing and winemaking are essentially solo activities that can reach across gender, social, economic and age boundaries, creating communities of passionate apostles who know a good wave — and a good wine — when they experience one.
