Winemaker's Notes

This is a pretty big Central Coast Syrah. 2003 was a warm vintage and most of the components were on the ripe and fleshy, forward side. Luckily, we had a lot of Bien Nacido to put in the blend, which was picked late in the season at reasonable sugars (23 – 24) with good acidity. The aromas are classic Syrah: hardspice, black pepper, berries with hints of lavender and licorice. It's rich and forward in the mouth with a bit more tannin than normal. The finish is juicy with fresh, balanced acidity, and an alcohol below 14% so you can actually drink it… a big yummy factor!
