While a small number of Napa Valley producers make Syrah (look for Lagier Meredith, Keplinger and Favia), there’s far more of it planted and vinified in Sonoma County. Some wineries make just one Syrah wine (including, from this list, Unti, which grows it on the estate), but others are full-on Syrah specialists, like Donelan, which makes six Syrahs, including four single-vineyard expressions. Taste through enough of them, and you’ll begin to get a feel for the full rainbow of possibilities that this complex, misunderstood grape can offer — from Two Shepherds’ delicate takes to Novy’s more exuberant versions. –Esther Mobley
