2011 Syrah, Magnum
Only 24 magnums made!
Cool climate Syrah is a wonderful expression of the more elegant side of Syrah. Though Russian River Valley is dominated by Pinot Noir, its warm days and cool foggy nights provide a perfect growing environment for Syrah achieving a perfect balance of ripeness and acidity.
The 2011 vintage was one of the most challenging in decades for Russian River, cold, reduced sunlight, late ripening and mildew and rain pressure made it a nail biting harvest, but the end result was worth the hard work and perseverance. This is the one of the few Saralee’s Vineyard designate Syrah made, enjoy!
