2013 Limited Syrah

Inky and opaque in the glass, our limited production syrah opens with hints of blackberry, anise, and smoked meats. On the palate, smooth tannins frame notes of dark chocolate, raisins, and preserved fig. The wine finishes with cinnamon, cloves, and a hint of vanilla. One barrel produced. Drink now through 2022 and beyond.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2013 was a very dry year due to low rainfall. We saw early bud-break throughout the vineyard while the usual marine layer, generally present through the growing season, was mostly absent. The warm season accelerated the ripening of all varieties, but made for a bountiful, well-ripened harvest.
Production Notes
De-stemmed and hand-sorted whole berries to 2-4 ton fermenters, fermented for 14 days and extended maceration for 3 weeks. Barreled down to 100% French oak, 60% new and aged for 19 months.
