2014 Tous Ensemble Syrah
Black plum, cassis and spice lace the aroma of 2014 Tous Ensemble Syrah. Juicy red raspberry and boysenberry fruit with plum blossom, graphite and spice make up the rich palate. The finish is long with plush tannins and bright acidity.
The 2014 vintage started dry but abundant February rain came just in time to break the winter drought. Warm spring temperatures encouraged an early bud break that kept vineyard development ahead of schedule through the entire season. Our harvest was condensed beginning September 3rd and concluding on September 24th. For the first time, our Pinot Noir and Syrah harvest overlapped. Abundant sunshine and cool evenings created near ideal conditions for ripe and balanced wines with yields falling in the normal range.
