Vellutini Ranch Syrah 2016

Varietal

Syrah

Growing Year Info

Although 2016 received just below average rainfall, it was still considered the last year of our 5-year drought. However, this adequate amount of rain at the appropriate time led to favorable conditions for bloom, which resulted in an even fruit-set and good vine balance. Summer temperatures were generally cooler, which allowed the fruit to ripen more slowly and develop deeper flavors. The weather held steady through harvest allowing us to pick the fruit at optimum maturity levels resulting in wines full of finesse and intensity.

Tasting Notes

Our 2016 Vellutini Ranch Syrah has beautiful aromas of black plum, dark chocolate and violets. On the palate, it has a bright blueberry followed by allspice and a chocolate covered cherry finish.
