Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Hug Cellars Cedar Lane Vineyard Arroyo Seco Syrah 2005 266 Cases Produced : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 88 POINTS The 2005 Syrah Cedar Lane Vineyard offers more cassis and black cherry characteristics buttressed by tart acidity. It is an elegant, sensual, nicely proportioned, restrained effort revealing solid flavor intensity. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. 266 cases produced. WA # , #172 (Aug 2007) Drink 2007 - 2012 Robert ParkerWINEMAKER NOTES: The Pacific Ocean greatly influences this cool climate Syrah. Though it is inland from the Monterey Bay, this maritime appellation produces Syrahs of grace and refinement. Look for notes of old-fashioned roses and ripe raspberries on the nose. Yet, nothing is out of balance, due to optimal acid levels and fruit that ripened to full maturity, yet did not come in too late. Our Cedar Lane Syrah is a nod to our favorite Crozes-Hermitage offerings. An underpinning of crushed wet rocks and white pepper infuse this wine with complexity.

We established Hug Cellars in 1994, following a successful run as proprietors of the Central Coast Wine Room in Harmony, California. Our first vintage, made under the thoughtful guidance of our friend John Alban (Alban Vineyards), yielded 87 cases of Edna Valley-designated Syrah. At the time, we continued to run our retail shop, and were making wine on a part-time basis, thanks to the generosity of John and Lorraine Alban, who allowed us to make our wines at Alban Vineyards. In the year 2000, both of us decided to make a full-time commitment to Hug Cellars and to our future as proprietors of a small, family-owned winery. Since that time, we have devoted ourselves and our resources entirely to this soulful endeavor. We’ve never looked back, even though punch-downs at 3:00 AM can get tiresome. We love to make wine, surrounded by the scent of the fruit and the earth. 16 years have passed since our first harvest. We would like to share our familiy's passion and art with you. Discover for yourselves the flavors we've learned to coax from the fruit of the vines. We now invite you to join us on our journey. We’re so fortunate to have discovered a deep love for wine and nature, and we invite you to share that discovery with us. Read less
