2014 Presqu'ile Vineyard Syrah


2014 Presqu'ile Vineyard Syrah


The Presqu’ile Vineyard is in a terrific location for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but this site is absolutely a hidden gem for cold climate Syrah. Set between the San Rafael Mountains to the north and the Solomon Hills to the south, this geological phenomenon combined with strong maritime influences, allows for unusually long “hang time” - 125 days on average. The result is complex wines with intense flavors, and naturally balanced acidity.

The 2014 Syrah from Presqu’ile Vineyard is bold, powerful and juicy - Offering up a beguiling interplay of lavender, violets, plum, black pepper, and sage. There are striking aromatic overtones that also adds complexity, lift and precision. Drink this forward and precisely balanced Syrah over the next 15 years. Vinous and Robert Parker 91 points. Wine Enthusiast 94 points.
