2019 Syrah, Spear Vineyard

"The 2019 Syrah Spear Vineyard is fabulous. Dramatic and layered in the glass, the 2019 is seriously impressive. Blue/purplish fruit, lavender, earthiness, tobacco, dried herbs and a good deal of savory intensity from the 30% whole clusters soar out of the glass. Spear is a special site for Syrah, as readers will see in this wine and others off the ranch."  ∼  Antonio Galloni

Winemaking:  The Spear Vineyard is a cool, sustainably farmed vineyard in the Santa Rita Hills AVA. These grapes retain their natural acidity and have beautiful purity, structure and depth. The grapes were 70% destemmed without being crushed, leaving approximately 30% whole- cluster, into a 1.5-ton open top fermentor and cold-soaked for six days prior to inoculation with a Cote Rotie isolate yeast. After the cold soak, the grapes were punched down by hand one to three times per day until fermentation was complete, 14 days. The free run juice was drained off and the remaining must was basket pressed and settled before being racked to 100% French oak (228L Burgundy) barrels for aging. This wine was aged in barrel for an additional twenty-six months prior to being racked from barrel and bottled in January of 2022

Bottle Aging: Wonderful now, but aging will just enhance this wine.  Ideal from 2023-2031
