2013 Les Voisins Syrah

Aromatically dazzling, this wine shows complex notes of black currant, crushed flowers, peat and white pepper. The savory flavors are rich yet light and restrained, with a long, drawn-out finish. The rich concentrated palate shows mesmerizing texture along with purity and an incredible sense of place. The dense flavors are redolent of huckleberry, red plum and crushed stone, resonating the rocky hillsides of the Yorkville Highlands. It’s an impressive wine whose best years are yet to come.

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 2013 vintage offered a variety of conditions. A rather dry January gave way to normal winter rainfall. As warmer weather arrived, bud break occurred in early April. Following a moderate summer, the first week of September brought very warm weather, along with a corresponding rise in sugar and malic acid levels. We rushed to pick all our fruit, with Pinot Noir harvest starting on September 9. Our 2013 wines are evocative of our 2006 bottlings.
