2011 Quivet Cellars Syrah, Las Madres Vineyard, Hulda Block, Carneros, Sonoma

Our cool climate Las Madres Vineyard was meant for a vintage like 2011. With a late bud break, yields were brought down to one cluster per shoot allowing this vineyard to focus, ripen evenly and thrive. 2011 Quivet Cellars Syrah Las Madres Vineyard Hulda Block, Carneros, Sonoma We thinned to one cluster per shoot at verasion, to further add to the concentration level of this fruit.

100% Syrah, aged in 50% new oak this classic cool-climate syrah possesses a dark ruby tone with a translucent rim. Brilliant aromas and flavors of black raspberry accompany a heady perfume of olive tapenade, light game, white pepper and smoked bacon. Deep, rich and layered on the nose, it stays vibrant and fresh on the palate. Seamless and linier acidity balance out the nature of this wine while delivering beautiful levels of precision. For such a young wine, the tannins are prominent but are cloaked by the concentration of this cool climate beauty.

A few years will be kind and smooth out this youngster. Look for a nice evolution over the next 6-8 years. By far, our best Las Madres Syrah to date.
