2017 Chamisal Vineyards Edna Valley Syrah
Most of the Syrah for this program came from the Chamisal Vineyard, but a small portion was sourced from the Spanish Springs Vineyard which is situated a bit closer to the coast. We are fortunate to supplement our estate Syrah program with the Spanish Springs Vineyard, as it has quickly became reputable for producing some of the best Syrah in our area. As with much of our blending philosophy, we believe that the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts. This elegant and balanced wine is a superb expression of that principle.
An elegant and balanced expression of Syrah that reflects the exceptional cool climate of the Edna Valley. On the nose, notes of fragrant baked blackberries and graham cracker crust mingle with notes of violets, white pepper and bay leaf. On the palate there is a depth of fruit, balanced by bright acidity and a juicy, lingering finish with notes of red plum and savory spice.
