Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This 2011 Estate Syrah has aromatics of blackberry, boysenberry, rare steak, vanilla bean, violets, and pipe tobacco. It has been bottled unfined and unfiltered after 27 months in French oak – 50% new. It is broad on the palate with velvety tannins and fresh acidity on the finish.
Winemaker's Notes
This is our second vintage of Estate Syrah, which was grown primarily at our Stoney Creek Vineyard in Fair Play at 2740’ in elevation. 2011 was the coolest vintage on record, which resulted in a long hang time in the vineyard. This enabled the fruit to ripen fully at lower brix levels, resulting in a more refined and elegant offering compared to the 2010.
