Winemaker David Fleming Notes
THE 2005 Wedding Hill Syrah is made from a block on our estate vineyard that is not only the oldest planting of this varietal in the Santa Lucia Highlands, but renders the highest quality Syrah each and every vintage. 

The 2005 growing season produced low yields, with the fruit displaying intense varietal character as well as perfect sugar/acid balance. Careful, hands-on vinication and extensive aging was implemented in making these nine barrels of the Smith family’s special Wedding Hill designation.

Reminiscent of its northern Rhône heritage, this wine tastes of dark berries and plums, with notes of spice. It is structured yet graceful, and tastes great with a pesto or sausage pizza and a good movie.
