2014 Larner Vineyard Syrah

2014 Larner Vineyard Syrah

The Larner Vineyard is located on the Southern end of the Ballard Canyon A.V.A.  I use the Estrella River Clone of Syrah, which is one of the oldest Syrah Clones in California.  The vines are planted on a south facing slope in pure sand.  This vineyard produces cooler climate Syrah characteristics with purity of fruit and vibrant fruit flavors. The grapes were 80% destemmed without being crushed, leaving over 95% whole berries and 20% whole-cluster, into a 1.5-ton open top fermentor and cold-soaked for five days prior to inoculation.  The addition of whole-cluster adds structure and vitality to the final wine.  I feel the stems add an interesting savory element to this wine that I enjoy.  This wine was aged in barrel for an additional twenty-two months prior to being racked from barrel and bottled.
