Production Notes

The soils of Block 22 Syrah are heavy in limestone, producing grapes that maintain acidity throughout the growing season. The Syrah was harvested by hand, de-stemmed and crushed into new 59 gallon French oak barrels with the heads removed. The fruit was cold-soaked for six days prior to being inoculated. Four punch downs daily helped to extract flavors and tannins from the fruit and the oak. After fermentation the wine was drained and returned to the barrels it was fermented in. This full-bodied wine has a vibrant hue with aromas of blueberries and brambly fruits. Rich on the palate, our Reserve Syrah has bright fruit, good structure and silky tannins that provide a lusciously long finish.
