Winemaker's Notes:

When we have the opportunity to taste our previous vintages of Syrah side by side, we’re always pleased with the unique character of our vineyard that shows through in every vintage. They all taste like they come from the same place, which is the magic of working exclusively with our own vineyard. Of course, every growing season is different, which accounts for much of the difference in flavor in each vintage. In 2004, dramatically low yields (less than 2 tons per acre) combined with the ripeness of the vintage to help us craft a very rich and thick Syrah. Compared to prior vintages, it could be called a little more “Californian” in character and rather decadent. Vineyard: Estate Vineyard, south facing slop near top of vineyard at over 2,500 feet elevation. 15.4 % alcohol Cases Produced: 371 Tasting Note: Our 2004 Syrah has the classic Cedarville Vineyard Syrah aromatics of earth, cedar and blackberries, along with a hint of graphite, chocolate and blackberry flavors, chalky tannins, balancing acids, and a very long finish. We co-fermented with a little higher percentage of Viognier than in 2003, which beautifully complements the intensity of the Syrah. As usual, it is the most complex and layered of our wines, and a wonderful wine with food. If you can manage to cellar some bottles, we suspect it will age gracefully, as have our previous vintages.
