Tasting Notes

An opulent wine with ripe cherry and red currant with hints of blueberry layered with undercurrents of caramel and cedar. On the nose, vanilla, black pepper and spring violets.

Winemaker Notes

The fruit cold soaked for 24-hours and was inoculated with yeast the next morning. Pumping over the Syrah was adjusted in duration and frequency, depending on taste and yeast activity (one to three times per day). The ferments were pressed off between one and four brix and then returned to tank. Once dry, the wine was racked off lees and inoculated for malolactic fermentation. MLF was done in barrel, and upon completion, racked into barrel for 26 months. Though the wine was filtered, owing to its time in barrel, fining was not necessary.
