Winemaker Notes

2012 Memory Found

The 2012 Syrah comes from a small 11 row parcel of “In The Rocks” Vineyard. Extremely low yields of 1.5 tons per acre creates a hedonistic wine of intense aromatics and powerful structure. The umami is incredible and the notes of olive tapenade, beef brisket, salty meats, black fruits and iron give way to a savory, mouthcoating powerhouse. This wine was aged in a combination of new 600L puncheons and neutral french oak for 24 months prior to being bottled and aged in bottle for an astounding 36 months prior to release. This wine was created to be enjoyed immediately but will continue to age beautifully over the years to come.
