Winemaker Celia Welch Masyczek Notes
2008 Proprietor's Reserve Syrah Dutcher Crossing
This Bordeaux blend was entirely estate-grown at our vineyards located in the southern part of Napa Valley. Each grape varietal was hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness throughout the month of October 2006. The grapes were fermented separately and aged in French oak barrels for eight months. Our star winemaker, Celia Welch Masyczek, then selected individual lots and slowly pieced together the components of this intriguing blend. The blend was returned to age in barrels for an additional eight months to further integrate the flavors and aromas in this complex blend.

Very bright dark raspberry and blackberry aromas jump out of the glass. Lightly vanilla-scented oak tones provide a deeper note to the lifted perfumy fruit ...more... aromas. At entry the wine is broad and soft, showing nice depth and a juicy mid-palate. The finish shows just a tiny “zip” of fresh crisp berry flavor.

This blend of 100% estate-grown fruit combines 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Cab Franc, and 12% Petit Verdot. The wines were harvested and fermented separately, then aged in French Oak until June 2007, when they were blended and returned to barrels. The 2006 Bad Boy Red spent a total of 16 months in barrels before it was bottled in February 2008.
