2015 Single Acre Syrah
This rich wine showcases dark fruit and spice with intense flavors and high acidity. It's planted in lower, warmer section of our vineyard that is perfectly suited for ripening this warmer climate variety.
Warm and temperate spring weather prompted an early bud break as well as perfect weather for ideal fruit set, thereby producing larger, luscious clusters with lots of berries. The consistently dry weather and summer sun beautifully ripened the fruit until the end of August when a cold front came in and slowed down the sugar accumulation of the fruit and assumed trajectory of our harvest. Consequently, we were able to bring in the fruit as the flavors presented themselves. As a result, the wines are concentrated with complex layers and bright acidity.
