Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This is always the more polished Syrah of the two we produce, containing a rich and supple mouthfeel with ample structure on the long and enveloping finish. The wine has aromatics of black and blue fruit, dark chocolate, leather, dried apricot, dried flowers, and tobacco.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2014 vintage of our Estate Syrah was grown at our Stoney Creek Vineyard in Fair Play at 2700’ in elevation blended from our best barrel lots each year. This wine is co-fermented with 3% Viognier which helps lift aromatics and helps to set the color. The wine spends about 30 months in French oak prior to being bottled to allow for integrated, polished tannins, and is bottled unfined and unfiltered
