2006 Rosella's Vineyard Syrah
Santa Lucia Highlands

Once again we have used the technique of whole cluster fermentation with our Rosella’s Vineyard Syrah in order to gain the complexity and the white pepper flavor that comes from Syrah stems. In 2006 the Syrah was fermented with 50% whole cluster and 50% destemmed fruit. The clones at Rosella’s are 877 and Bien Nacido and we used one half ton of each. From the warm June and July in 2006, the Syrah vines got a head start on ripening, even though the fall was anything but warm. This is a wine that will need at least 3 years in the cellar to begin to open and show off its ripe blackberry and pepper characteristics, although 24 hours in a decanter can give you a sneak preview of the wine.
