Hop Barn Hill Syrah 2014



Growing Year Info

The growing year in 2014 was the third dry year in a row and was full of unforeseen challenges provided by Mother Nature. You would think the ongoing drought, excessive heat from March thru June, and hail in early April would have brought down the quality of this vintage. Thankfully this was not the case! Even though the harvest was very early, the small berry sizes and healthy yields have produced very well balanced wines; they are not over-bearing in tannin or structure, and are a pleasure to drink.

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Hop Barn Hill Syrah has aromas of blueberry, cinnamon and tobacco. Balanced tannins on the mouth give way to flavors of cherry, raspberry, bacon and oak spice.
