The 2018 Clary Ranch Syrah was harvested on 9 November and has just 11% alcohol! This is perhaps the most extreme Syrah site in California, and the resulting wine a world-class one. Its nose is extremely savoury and definitive of the variety, with notes of beef jerky, mesquite and cardamom that continue on the palate, which simultaneously has the weight of a feather but lasting substance and structure. This wine perpetually evolved and unfolded over 72 hours, and is a great example of what is now being achieved with Syrah in California. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035
From the Winemakers' Website: "Our coldest vineyard for Syrah, Clary has been harvested as late as November 18th at under 12% alcohol. The protracted growing season paired with the sedimentary clay-loam soils slow the ripening and allow us to farm without irrigation resulting in fruit that is deeply pigmented and loaded with flavor. The resulting wines we have made exhibit soaring aromatics, expressive exotic spice notes, and high natural acidity that are hallmarks of this wind scraped vineyard".
