2020 Outer Coast Plain Syrah
A very distinctive and super savory earthy wine with a burnt sienna color. Complex aromas of circus hay, iodine, cranberry cider, and chocolate fondue. Medium-to-full bodied with a very long finish of roasted root vegetables, tomato vinaigrette.
Our 2020 Syrah was harvested from our vineyard on September 15, 2020. The grapes were whole berry fermented with stems to dryness with a yeast isolated from the Rhone Valley, whose characteristics promote a wine of fresh forward fruit. After completing fermentation, the wine was transferred to air-dried casks for a period of 17 months. The result is a well-balanced wine with soft, rounded edges. The final assemblage is 100% Syrah.
