2012 Quivet Cellars Syrah, Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley

2012 marked our third vintage of Syrah from Kenefick Ranch and it did not disappoint.  Our two clones 7 and 174, were picked and co-fermented together to create an interesting and more complex wine.

2012 Quivet Cellars Syrah Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley Dark Opaque in color, aromas of black cherry, iron and saline are followed by a mouthful of dark fruit, spice and Garrigue.  The mid palate is impeccably balanced for such a big wine and sails off into a finish that reflects a sense of place.  Look for this wine to drink well in its youth, buts also carries a tannin structure that shows after the primary fruit subsides.

This wine will age for 5-10 years and shows off the amazing complexities of this site and terroir.
