Winemaker Notes
Our 2013 Syrah is dark in color and displays bold aromas of black cherry, blackberry, boysenberry and a peppery spice. Concentrated dark fruit flavors of black cherry, and black currant give way to notes of nutmeg, white pepper and hints of vanilla. Its smooth tannins and rich mouthfeel frame a soft and lingering finish.

Production Notes
The 2013 growing season was one of the most amazing we have seen in the last several years. Despite modest rainfall, the timing of the fruit development was ideal. Bud break began in the second week of March and a warm spring led to slightly earlier bloom and fruit set. A typical sunny Santa Ynez summer allowed for optimal staggered ripening of each varietal and we experienced a harvest lasting nearly 3 months.
