Winemaker's Notes:

Layer upon layer of rich dark plum, blackberry and blueberry accented with dried flowers and light wood smoke. The initial aromatic notes transition into licorice, spice and rose candy and the first sip reveals just what stressed vines can offer. After a wave of intense black fruit, spice and acidity, the wine softens forming a core of chocolate, blackberry and plum. This quaffable wine finishes with notes of cocoa dusted blueberries and hints of lavender and really showcases the “fringeness” of this block. There are plenty of ripe tannins that frame the core of this wine but the concentration and focus of the fruit and spice persist like a single note on a well-made guitar. Decant this wine for up to an hour for further enjoyment. Harvest Dates September 22, 2006 Appellation Dry Creek Valley Block USY Barrel Aging 14 months Barrel Type 20% new French Oak, 80% 1-2 year old French Oak Blend-100% Syrah pH-3.7 Alcohol-14.7% Release Date-March 2008 Cases-378
