2019 Syrah, Hyde Vineyard
Hailing from an older Syrah planting at Hyde vineyard, this Syrah Noir block is situated on a gentle hillside in the windy Carneros AVA. Picked within the first few days October, the 2019 does a terrific job of showing the typicity of the site which is hallmarked by higher-toned fruit with more savory notes of prosciutto and bacon fat—characteristics we love in Syrah.
Enjoying the whole-cluster influences, the 2019 was fermented separately as two lots of 50% whole cluster and 100% whole cluster, a combined equivalent of 80% whole cluster. As a result, the 2019 balances the naturally higher acid of the site, with weight and texture producing a very alluring wine.
