With five blocks of Syrah that make up the 15 acres of Anna’s ridge top Vineyard, we have experienced particular success with Block five and Block six. These two sections planted with small berry Châteauneuf-du-Pape clones express the soul of Syrah.  The long growing season of 2011 with its cool summer, added additional hang time to maximize their flavor development.  Some 20% of the blend was co-fermented with seven percent Viognier, a practice famous in France’s Côte-Rôtie region.  This method, only possible when both varieties are harvested at the same time, enhances the Syrah aromatics and sets the red grapes characteristic dark pigment color.  The wine is thick, dense, with a sense of flesh and mineral backbone.
