This is our last vintage of this wine, and it is a pity! But we have had to apply the knife somewhere, and we have decided that this vineyard must go-- in spite of its obvious nobility.
This is a superb vintage of this wine: dark, powerful, complex. 100% syrah, ad 100% whole cluster-- but somehow not reminiscent of many other syrahs, especially from California. The wine is too tannic, too structured; and not the least fruity. It is redolent of olives and dark truffles, dried meat, leather. We love it and are so happy to completing this collaboration with such an excellent wine. We made one puncheon; 24 cases.
