Spicy, soft and full-bodied, the 2021 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.

The juice is co-inoculated with yeast and malolactic bacteria. The primary fermentation peaks at 85 degrees and completes on October 13. Following a 5 day cold-soak, and blending in tank, the wine is transferred to barrel. Nearly 11 months of barrel age in American oak smoothens and softens the wine. The dark fruit, smokiness and slight peppery finish are on display and the wine is moved from barrel and blended in tank for bottling and release in late September 2022.
