Antonio Galloni - Vinous:

"A dark, pungent wine, the 2012 Syrah Les Voisins hits the palate with masses of blue and black fruit. Smoke, tobacco, tapenade and white flowers open up in the glass, adding further dimensions of complexity. Expressive varietal overtones grace the finish. The 2012 was done with 50% whole clusters. Even with all of its intensity, the Voisins remains a bit chunky, but it certainly does not lack in personality or character. The Voisins is a blend of Hawkes Butte, High Rock and Halcon, all in the Yorkville Highlands."

Product Description:

"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.

Les Voisins. French for “the neighbors,” our Les Voisins wines are derived from closely clustered, neighboring vineyards, offering a nuanced and tightly focused reflection of Anderson Valley and Yorkville Highlands.

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." - Winery
