Product Description

100% Syrah from the CCOF-Organic Massa Ranch in Yountville (Napa Valley). We adore this vineyard. Vineyard manager Patrick Ridder is a great farmer, a joy to work with and a great supporter of the Revolution. This is a rich and bold wine, distinctively Syrah with its signature blueberry, bacon fat and pepper notes. 91 Points Wine Enthusiast (July, 2014): “This is a great price for a single-vineyard Syrah from the Napa Valley region of Yountville. The wine is bone dry, acidic and tannic, with deep, impressive blackberry, black currant, green tea, charred meat and black pepper flavors. It improves a lot with decanting, and overall is impressive” We harvested the grapes on October 21, 2012, at 26.2° Brix, pH 3.89 and 5.8 g/L titratable acidity. 50% of the stems were returned to the fermentor to add texture, enhance mouthfeel and bring out the savory character of the wine. The wine matured in 6 neutral French oak barrels. We bottled 148 cases on January 22, 2014. The finished wine has 14.2% alcohol, 5.7 g/L titratable acidity and a pH of 3.90.
