2012 Magnum Les Voisins Syrah

This medium bodied wine is sure to please those who are partial to Syrah, from the inviting nose of spice and dried herbs, through to the red and purple fruits on the palate. Its bright acidity provides an ideal balance to the firm but juicy structure.

VINEYARD NOTES:
Les Voisins Syrah originates from three vineyards in Yorkville Highlands that share not only a property line, but also schist soils reminiscent of the northern Rhône. It is these soils that contribute to the spiciness and backbone of this Syrah. These vineyards are the source of three of our Single Vineyard bottlings. Fortunately, Wells Guthrie holds back a bit of fruit to blend together for Les Voisins.

VINTAGE NOTES:
The 2012 vintage was a welcome relief following the challenges of 2010 and 2011. A wet winter was balanced by a moderate, slightly dry spring, with bud break and veraison occurring several weeks later than usual. Bestowing optimal conditions for slow, even ripening, a long Indian summer extended into early October. Harvest commenced approximately two weeks later than previous years, and was condensed into a few short weeks, with all of our fruit in by November 1.
