This Syrah is sourced from Stillwater Creek Vineyard in the Frenchman Hills near Royal City, and the first time we’ve shown it on its own as a vineyard designated wine. This cool location and vintage produced a Syrah that is deep and rich. Dark fruits are forward with more pepper than most, savory spices, and earthiness covered with dark chocolate at the end. Soft acid levels let this wine please you on its own or with your favorite umami dominant foods, grilled or roasted.
Bottled on 7/21/12. Only 84 cases were produced. Alcohol: 15.51%, pH 3.68, TA 6.38 g/L.
100% Syrah (Stillwater Creek Vineyard)
Barrels: This wine was aged for 22 months in 25% new French oak from Tonnellerie de Jarnac, 25% once used de Jarnac, and the balance seasoned Radoux in conjunction with French oak infusion additions by Canton Cooperage.
