About our 2011 Syrah

Complex aromas of cherry and blueberry entwine elements of earth and leather, accented by lavender and spice. The wine is of medium weight with a balanced, textured palate that suggests wines from France’s northern Rhône. This Syrah will shine with a hearty stew or flavorful rib-eye. Drink 2015 – 2021. In its youth, decant for 1 – 2 hours before service.

2011 Vintage

The 2011 vintage was cool and late, with greater than average rainfall (63 vs 46 inch norm). Warm temperatures at harvest brought the grapes to full physiological maturity and imprinted our Syrah with bright and pure varietal character. For the fourth consecutive vintage, yields were very low, only one ton per acre, as compared to the norm of 1.5 tons.
