Spicy, soft and full-bodied, the 2020 Syrah opens with black fruit giving way to warm butter and baking spices, followed by a toasty coffee finish. This wine has a lower acidity than most of our other wines and shines both as a sipping wine or paired with cured meats, light barbecue, and smoked Gouda cheese.

In the Cellar
Once the fermentation temperature rises above 70 degrees, malo-lactic bacteria is added. Peaking at 88 degrees, the fermentation completes on October 12 and the wine is pressed to barrel. Following 15 months of barrel age the wine is transferred to tanks for minor adjustments prior to bottling on February 5 and 6, 2022.
