2014 Syrah

Intense blackberry and deep dark plum aromatics come on strong at the front along with some chocolate aromas. This Syrah is showing some classic spicy aromas right behind those primary components. Strong flavors of fresh plum and blackberry with a touch of spicy oak and cedar-like characters. The mouthfeel is full-bodied with a softening tannin structure that lengthens out the dark fruit finish.

Varietals- 100% Syrah

Vineyards- The Dalton Ranch & Canterbury Vineyards

Aging/Cooperage- 22 months in 20% new French oak and 80% neutral oak

Production- The 2014 Syrah was gently crushed with approximately 25% whole berries left intact. The grapes were fermented in small bins for a period of 11 days. The fresh yound wine was then racked via gravity into small French oak casks for completion of fermentation and the duration of a secondary bacterial fermentation. After about 3 months, the wines were racked and then put back into barrel for an extended aging period. After 22 months, the wine was removed from barrel and bottled with minimcal filtration and no fining. 

Scott's Notes- The 2014 vintage was heavily affected by a third consecutive drought year. This reduced yields dramatically so that a bit of extra Syrah was needed from Canterbury Vineyards in order to help us make the 212 cases we produced. The concentrated fruit from the low yields is apparent at first glimpse and taste of this NH classic.
