Columbia Crest Syrah Columbia Valley Reserve 2002
Vinification * Grapes were destemmed and crushed with 10% whole berries remaining, then fermented on skins 7-10 days with a twice-daily pumpover regime to gently extract color, aromas and flavors. * The wine aged for 12-14 months in French (60%) and American (40%) oak barrels. The blend includes Viognier (co-fermented) to add complexity to the bouquet and also depth and nuance to the finished wine. Technical Data * Total acidity: 0.61 g/100ml * pH: 3.73 * Alcohol: 13.9%
