VINTAGE - 2009
APPELLATION - SONOMA VALLEY, SONOMA COUNTY, NORTH COAST, CALIFORNIA.
Aromas of pomegranates and sage are combined with hints of vanilla. In the mouth, firm, wellstructured tannins are complemented by plum and fig flavors and long finish.
The Jack London Ranch creates distinctive red wines that have a loyal following throughout the world. The red volcanic soil and pleasantly warm climate of this hillside vineyard combine to produce rich, fullbodied wines. Located on Sonoma Mountain with an
eastern exposure, this vineyard gets early morning sun and breezes in the afternoons that temper the day's most extreme heat. The Syrah at the Jack London Vineyard was picked in early October and fermented in stainless steel tanks for two weeks before it was pressed off the skins. It was then settled and racked several times before being put down into French oak barrels in early
January of 2010. After barrel aging for 19 months, the wine was pumped out of the oak and prepared for bottling in September of 2011.
