Bunny Slope Vineyard 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2001 Syrah Bunny Slope Vineyard is an original artistic expression of this varietal. Complex aromas of damp earth quince kirsch plums spice box pepper and tar are followed by an Amarone-like attack revealing broad gamy distinct flavors. 89 pts. R. Parker

Established in 1996 by Tim and Mimi Spear, Clos Mimi is a "très petite" winery located in Santa Maria, California. Clos Mimi is French for "Mimi's enclosed vineyard" expressing Tim's timeless endearment to his children's mother, his wife, his business partner, his best friend and his soul mate. Inspired by the greatest "monocépage" wines of Burgundy, Côte Rotie and Hermitage, Clos Mimi is committed to vineyard designated, one hundred percent Syrah farmed by small family growers in Paso Robles and Santa Ynez. Tim is the "vigneron" for Clos Mimi. Thanks to his traditional convictions from a previous lifetime, Tim is "très religieux" in his pursuit of natural winegrowing. In 1988 Tim had the good fortune of interning alongside a young Jean-Louis Chave in California. Three years later while spending an entire day hiking the steep vineyards of Hermitage in Jean-Louis' royal company and tasting the unblended and highly spiritual 1990 Chave Hermitage from "barrique," Tim was smitten by Syrah. Between the "Exposition Universelle" may 1855 in Paris and the first performance of Giacomo Puccini's "La Bohème's" 1 february 1896 in Turin, Mimi and Tim fell in love once upon a time. Read less
