2011 Baker Ranch Syrah

One of our most desirable wines, the 2011 Baker Ranch Syrah
is delicate and structured, with a broad, soft palate and light body. Evocative of the terroir-driven Syrahs of the northern Rhône, this wine intrigues and enthralls with myriad layers of exotic spice.

Vineyard Notes: 

Syrah is exceedingly hard to find in the Pinot Noir-centric Anderson Valley, though Baker Ranch dared to plant it, and it delivers with flying colors. Sustainably farmed and wonderfully expressive, this wine offers a unique addition to the Copain Syrah portfolio.

 

Vintage Notes: 

Despite the challenges that 2011 brought to Anderson Valley, our wines from this vintage are some of the most elegant Wells has made, offering great tension and balance. A cool, rainy spring and summer delayed the growing season, while mid-September brought sun and 90 degree heat to the vineyards. We harvested this fruit during a brief window in October as the vineyards were drying out.
