Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The structure is firm and powerful with rich, dark chocolate aromas followed by macerated blackberry fruit flavors with nicely punctuated notes of black pepper spiciness
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 harvest was on the early side, this year. We had substantial rain in late February and early March which helped offset another dry winter. Starting with bud break through to veraison and finally ending with harvest, everything was ahead of schedule. Our Honey B Vineyard, in Carneros, had ideal temperatures through harvest which allowed for excellent ripening and a full spectrum of flavors.
Production Notes
All of our fruit is hand harvested with scissors rather than knives to prevent bruising and lacerations during the pick. Everything is de-stemmed and never crushed. A longer cold soak coupled with a very high percentage of whole berries throughout the fermentation process brings layers and complexity to the final wine. The Syrah has a greater percentage of “bleed” to bring more concentration while less time on the skins brings more fruit character to the final wine. The wine is racked clean into French oak and aged for 10 months.
Winemaker Notes

Food Pairing Notes
The firm tannin structure of our Syrah is a perfect match for marinated tri-tip, spicy ribs or a deep dish sausage and mushroom pizza.

Other Notes
Our Honey B Vineyard is located in the Carneros AVA of the Napa Valley. This cool climate growing region is widely recognized for premium Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines which are influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean combined with summer fog, warm days, and a long, temperate growing season. We have 20.68 acres planted to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah and Gewürztraminer.
