2017 Syrah — Mudd West Vineyard


We made a super small lot of pure Syrah in the 2015 vintage...and because it was fun and delicious, we decided to do that again in 2017! So, here is our 2017 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 on March 21st, 2018 after six months in older oak. This is a sweetly fruited, blackberry, bacon and lilac-driven wine with a great savory quality and wonderful length. Our 2017 Syrah is medium-bodied and has a beautiful purple colored rim with an opaque core. 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 and anything from the Pig! While quite youthful now, our 2017 Syrah will continue to develop in the bottle for at least five years. This is a special, small production wine at just 220 cases so don't wait! 3 bottle max per customer.
