Winemaker Notes

At harvest, the grapes were gently crushed, then fermented in small lots following severaldays of cold soak, using a variety of yeast strains isolated from the Rhône valley. Whencomplete, the wine was dejuiced through large stainless steel strainers, then gentlytransferred to one-, two- and three-year-old American oak barrels. The inclusion of older oakmitigates the intense, direct character often associated with American oak, resulting in amore balanced, integrated wine. Similar to an Australian Shiraz, the flavors are clean andberry-driven. The oak acts as a framework providing excellent length and structure,surrounding the intense, mouth-coating fruit. This wine should age gracefully for five to tenyears.

Wine Enthusiast
Dubbed Amerique because of the use of American oak barrels, this broad, relatively fruity, accessible Syrah splays out across the core palate with a panoply of blueberries, boysenberries, cooked cherries and cassis. That lush fruit plays out against firm tannins, a fine balancing act.
