2015 Syrah — Mudd West Vineyard

We made a super small lot of pure Syrah in the 2015 vintage...just a couple barrels culled out from our Due Uve lot that we tasted and recognized something that would be fun to show on its own. So here is our 2015 Syrah from the Mudd West Vineyard. This wine is 100% Syrah fruit, as always hand-harvested grapes, stomped on by foot and punched down by hand. Fermented wild and bottled by gravity on July 10, 2016 after eight months in older oak. This is a sweetly fruited, blackberry and lilac-driven wine with a great savory quality and wonderful length. Bright, juicy acidity and moderate alcohol carry the flavors and aroma on and on. This wine will be awesome with roast chicken, steaks and chops, mushrooms and grains. While quite youthful now, our 2015 Syrah will continue to develop in the bottle for at least five years. Teeny-tiny production at just 49 cases so don't wait. 3 bottle max per customer.
