2014 Quivet Cellars Syrah, Whole Cluster, Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley

Producing some of the richest and most consistent fruit in the Napa Valley, the Kenefick Ranch vineyard is a staple in the Quivet Cellars wine portfolio.  Located on the northernmost tip, it overlooks the small town of Calistoga.  Planted on lower southwest facing hillsides, the soils are 2014 Quivet Cellars Syrah Whole Cluster Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley loaded with fractured volcanic rock and pumice.  This stressed environment naturally produces a miniscule 1.5 to 2 tons per acre and contributes greatly to the fruits overall concentration.

The color is deep purple to the rim and is followed by aromatics of white pepper, violets, blackberries and mineral components that soar from the glass.  These gorgeous notes are followed by a rich blue fruit mid palate that is concentrated, balanced with a feminine touch due to stem complexity.  Powerful, balanced and intriguing, this wine will please those who want structure and grace in the same bottle.  The finish boast notes of cocoa powder and barrel spice that flows effortlessly into prominent but slight tannins that will need time to integrate.

A year of bottle age will smooth this wine out and it will drink well for 5-8 years or more.
