The grapes were gently crushed just 20 minutes after being harvested and then fermented in small temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. We used a combination of specially selected yeast and native yeast to enhance color and flavor extraction without harsh tannins. We pumped the tanks over twice a day until nearly dry, then pressed and aged the wine in a combination of French and American oak barrels for 20 months. Only the best barrel lots were chosen for our Estate Bottled Syrah.

Tasting Notes: This Dunnigan Hills Syrah full of earthy, dusty, dried cranberry aromas and richly layered flavors of plum and spice, white pepper and blueberry. The broad flavors linger in the finish. This is an age-worthy Syrah with a decent grip of tannins that balance the plush, silky flavors in the palate.
