Winemaker Notes

#36 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009

Our "Ciedleigh" Syrah (pronounced kay-Lee) is made entirely from Red Mountain grapes. Old and new world in a glass is what makes the Ceidleigh a distinctive wine deserving of its name, which means "celebration" in Gaelic. The wine is inky with ripe plum and dried cherries balanced around a wonderful aroma of earth after a morning rain. It is lush and full, almost Rubenesque but with an elegant attack of fresh strawberries and orange zest finished with a note of licorice.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Smooth, round and generous, this positively glows with gorgeous plum, blackberry and floral spice aromas and flavors, echoing on the long, expressive finish. This just doesn't quit. Drink now through 2014. 1,200 cases made.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2006 Ceidleigh (“celebration” in Gaelic) Syrah spent 20 months in 27% new French oak. Deep purple-colored, it displays a bouquet of cigar box, mineral, scorched earth, lavender, and blueberry. Dense and rich on the palate, this full-bodied, pure Syrah has enough structure to evolve for 3-4 years. It should offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2021.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This is deeply saturated, lush, scented with violets, raisins and chocolate, still tight and spicy. Excellent depth and structure, with about one quarter of the oak new. It needs some breathing time, and as it opens it shows more Rhône-like flavors of blood and shrubby herb.

Wine monitoring, not wine making. Terrior and a minimal approach make the best wine. We work primarily with the old vines, bringing forth maturity and concentration while maintaining an elegance. Native fermentation encourages lovely earth tones without eclipsing the fruit that is unique to the vineyard, letting the fruit speak for itself. Not unlike art, where beauty and excitement are found in the unique natural abberations. We encourage character. Great wines have personalities.

Efestç, pronounced F-S-T is an acronym for Daniel & Helen Ferrelli – Patrick Smith – and Kevin & Angela Taylor. Daniel, a second generation Italian had been making wine in his garage forever,passing on the tradition of his family to his son-in-law Kevin Taylor. Daniel and Patrick met through business and their friendship blossomed through sharing their passion for wine. One evening Daniel was making dinner for his family at the Taylor house and invited Patrick too. A discussion of Kevin and Daniel’s wine making hobby came up. Patrick knew of some people in the wine industry and, why not start a project together!

They met with Chris Upchurch and Jay Soloff of DeLille Cellars and both decided to come on as consultants and Efestç was born. With a love for all wines but strong interest in Australian wines they took a trip there to discover what made the wine so unique. The Spirit of Australia was discovered and returned were three friends and the idea, not to take yourself too seriously, enjoy your family, friends and anyone else that would like to join you in a glass of wine, breaking of bread and a good laugh
