2015 Quivet Cellars Syrah, Whole Cluster, Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley

In 2015, a 100% whole cluster fermentation was the first thing that came to mind with this ripe, drought stricken vintage.  The combination of bold upvalley Syrah fruit and old world stem inclusion made an explosive and dynamic wine. 2015 Quivet Cellars Syrah Whole Cluster Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley

Slightly lighter in color due to the stem inclusion, aromas of kirsch, chai spice and cedar flow effortlessly into a bold & silky mid palate that really takes center stage.  The unique quality the stem inclusion brings to this wine and vineyard is astounding and exceeded my expectations on all fronts.  Simultaneously rich and elegant, this wine is superbly balanced and showcases a lovely lingering finish.  Allow some cellar time so the detailed elements of the whole cluster fermentation can emerge and express hidden layers and complexities.
