Vineyard Notes
Mother Nature was generous and mild in 2016, gracing Napa Valley with a near-perfect growing season. Moderate weather throughout July and August was followed by slightly warmer temperatures as harvest inched closer, bringing the grapes to optimum ripeness before being handharvested in mid-October.
Production Notes
We aged this Syrah for 20 months in 50% new French oak to soften the tannins, create complexity, and add depth to the wine’s generous body. The barrels also impart intriguing vanilla and spice attributes to complement the intense dark fruit characteristics.
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs well with rich, hearty meats such as braised lamb shanks or sweet and spicy baby back ribs. For a cheese course, try Abbaye de Belloc, a sheeps milk cheese with a mild, nutty flavor.
