2016 Syrah Details

2016 Syrah

 Syrah is one of our flagship wines. Enjoyable in their youth, our wines are handcrafted to stand the test of time, revealing beauty and grace with age. The spring gave us a warm and flowering and fruit set with a high quality of fruit. The rest of the year gave the vineyard a long growing season with very little frost pressure in the spring or the fall. We had an average heat index that got us through a harvest ending in late October.
