Fleming Jenkins Vineyards & Winery

2005 Livermore Valley Syrah
Madden Ranch

We are very excited about the Syrah grapes from John Madden's Livermore Valley vineyard. John and Peggy are fellow ABC sports commentators, and during a lunch in New York City, John learned we wanted to produce Syrah. He graciously offered us grapes from his family vineyard and we were happy to accept!

Madden Ranch has 20 acres of Concannon clone Syrah—one of the oldest Syrah clones in California—all on 5BB rootstock.

Grapes were harvested on October 5, 2005 and were taken to our winery where a 3 day cold soak was followed by yeast inoculation. The wine was aged in French oak for 14 months before bottling.
