The Recluse is what we are calling our Broken Leg Vineyard Syrah in 2006. The name pays homage to the brown recluse spider that bit Jared during a pre-harvest vineyard visit which landed him in the hospital having emergency surgery. Perhaps because of that spider or maybe it was just destiny, we decided to experiment with blending some of our warmer climate Syrah into the cool climate Broken Leg. It didn't take much to result in a richer wine of superior balance and character. Our final blend was 91% Broken Leg Syrah (which was co-fermented with 3% Broken Leg Viognier) and 9% Wylie Vineyard Syrah from the Sierra Foothills. The vineyard lots were vinified discreetly until the final blend was created. Both primary and MLF occurred without inoculation. Broken Leg stayed sur lie for 12 ½ months until we racked to tank. Wylie was racked after 10 months and returned to barrel until chosen for the blend.
