VINTAGE - 2009

APPELLATION - AMADOR COUNTY, SIERRA FOOTHILLS, CALIFORNIA.

VINEYARD & VINTAGE NOTES:-

58% comes from Syrah vineyards grown in the mountainous Chap-man Syrah Vineyard of Shenandoah Valley, Amador County. This vineyard is a steep, rocky, decomposed granite vineyard, on the west facing slope. 39% comes from Syrah vineyards grown in the moun-tainous York Syrah Vineyard of Fiddletown, Amador County. This vineyard is a steep, rocky, volcanic vineyard on the southwest facing slope. 3% Riesling from the Nelson Vineyard is added for mouth-watering complexity. Extremely low yields from these highly stressed mountain vineyards, produce first growth quality fruit. The harvest of 2009 produced a smaller than average crop and grapes came in with small bunches and berry size, allowing for a more ex-tractive vintage.

WINEMAKERS NOTES:-
This wine is produced in a rich, dark, fruit forward style. Aging in French Oak cooperage provides for a well-rounded wine, with firmly structured tannins. Our Reserve Syrah exhibits aromas of blackberry, pepper, clove, blueberry and sweet light oak, leading way to fresh, bright, spicy fla-vors of the same, laced with firm tannins, and a long, lingering fin-ish.
