Abacela Syrah Southern Oregon 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

This vintage represents the first finished wine that is a blend of fruit from our Cox's Rock and Cobblestone Hill estate vineyards. In addition this wine also contains fruit from Steelhead Run and Del Rio vineyards. Blackberries, spice and lavender aromas precede a richly textured, medium-full bodied finish. This wine also epitomizes our foremost blending priority: an intense, deep core of very ripe fruit. We feel this wine will offer prime accompaniment to dishes like Mediterranean lamb kabobs with aromatic jasmine rice. It will improve in the bottle for the next seven to ten years. As this unfined and unfiltered wine will form sediment over time, decanting is recommended.

Here, on sunny south sloping rocky hills, we passionately grow Tempranillo, Syrah, Merlot, Dolcetto, Malbec, Grenache, and other varietals carefully matched to our unique microclimate. The estate fruit is hand picked when optimally ripe and gently fermented and processed in a gravity flow winery to preserve quality. The crisp, fresh varietal character of our white wine is a product of our vineyard practices and minimal handling wine making philosophy. Application of these same principals to red wine production, with additional prolonged cellaring in small oak casks, further enhances flavor and stabilizes the wines. Consequently our red wines are big and deeply-colored with intense aromas and flavors that have ample structure and tannin for aging. The final products are balanced wines with distinctive varietal character that pair exceptionally well with an assortment of delicious foods. Our ultimate objective is to produce wines that are a statement of the harmony between the grape variety and its terroir. We appreciate your virtual visit to Abacela, but want to encourage you to tour our vineyards and winery and taste our wines to fully appreciate our passion. Read less
