2010 Quivet Cellars Syrah Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley

In 2010 we were offered a small amount of Syrah from a micro sized block located at the Kenefick Ranch vineyard.  A stone's throw from the famed Araujo Estate Eisele Vineyard, 2010 Quivet Cellars Syrah Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Napa Valley this bench land beauty has the ability to ripen any varietal earlier than most parts of Napa Valley.

Twenty-Ten delivered an engaging Syrah that could be best described as the rich, boastful and the bipolar opposite of our Las Madres Syrah.  Deep purple from the core to the rim, aromas of scorched earth, crystallized blueberries, sage and freshly cut hay combine with a rush of blue fruits.  These are perfectly framed by ample natural acidity and carry throughout the wine, keeping this youngster in balance.  The back end of this wine is loaded with the above components and glides into mile long finish of spices, structure and softened tannin.

We recommend 2-4 hours of air to consume it in its youth and look for further development for 5-7 years.
