Winemaker Bill Canihan Notes
Exuberance describes our emotions upon learning that our first vintage of Syrah was judged by 47 judges to be the best red wine from more than 4,300 wines in the 2007 San Francisco International Wine Competition (www.sfwinecomp.com). We feel that great wines originate in the vineyard, and that the cool climate of our Sonoma Valley organic & dry-farmed vineyard results in an exceptionally elegant Syrah. Back-to-back Gold & Double Gold medals have proven that our unique terroir, meticulous organic farming practices, and minimalist winemaking philosophy result in exceptional wines. VINEYARD NOTES: Located on the border of the Sonoma Valley and Los Carneros appellations, planted in 1998 with FPMS Clone 1 on SO4 and 101-14 rootstock, this 3.4- ...more... acre vineyard produces a cool-climate Syrah. Ned Hill's dry-farming, pruning techniques and biodynamic vineyard management practices result in low yields of less than 1.5 tons per acre. The vineyard is certified organic by CCOF. TASTING NOTES: "Deep garnet violet color. Exotic aromas of eucalyptus, black olive, menthol and chocolate blueberry with a supple, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless cocoa and spicy roasted nut nuanced finish with chewy tannins. A decadently delicious and distinctive syrah." "93 Points"- Beverage Testing Institute, January 2013
