Production Notes
Our Syrah hails from the warmer end of the acclaimed Russian River Valley AVA of Sonoma County which is perfect for bringing out all the unique characteristics of this variety. After harvest, the grapes were transferred to tank where it was fermented with native yeast and then racked to French and American oak barrels. After 21 months in barrel (75% new), the wine was bottled.
Vineyard Notes
The 2016 vintage in Russian River Valley was marked by high-quality fruit and an earlier than average harvest. The fruit was sourced from estate vineyards in the Russian River Valley AVA. An early start to the growing season was followed by warm temperatures throughout the spring and summer. This resulted in even ripening and balanced flavor development with the fruit coming into the winery on October 2, 2016.
