Full-bodied and fruit-forward on entry, this powerful Syrah delivers jammy blackberry/black cherry flavors with a savory mid-palate and a long oak spice-driven finish.
We sourced the fruit for this Syrah from the esteemed Asmundson Family Vineyard on the Willcox Bench. Harvested in September 2013. Crafted in a New World style, this deep Syrah was destemmed and fermented in a stainless steel tank for 7days, using the D21 yeast. To increase the extraction of color, flavor, and tannins, the skins remained in contact with the finished wine for an additional 7 days before being pressed. Aged for 18 months in 40% New French Oak, then bottled, unfiltered, in March 2015.
It is dark crimson and purple hue with a high viscosity. Concentrated aromas of blackberry jam and freshly baked blueberry muffins combine with violet perfume and some earthy/meaty characteristics.
