This wine is made entirely of clone 383 from Shokrian Vineyard in Los Alamos, CA. This Syrah clone gives a tight cluster with small concentrated berries. This block tends to ripen late while retaining its acidity creating a rich but still refreshing wine. This vineyard is farmed organically and is on its path to being certified organic.
This Syrah was harvested around 23 Brix and was fermented roughly 80% whole cluster for 22 days. This wine was aged in 4 year old French oak, racked and returned once, and then bottled in July of 2020 unfined and unfiltered.
Drinks fancier! Think California and Saint Joseph’s love child.
