Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We’ve been working with Cimarron Syrah for six vintages now and it’s become a real staple in our cellar. Not only does this wine make its way into a couple of our important blends, we always pull our favorite few barrels for a vineyard/varietal designate. Instead of using Romanian oak on this wine like we have in the past, we aged this vintage briefly in a French oak barrel from the Vallaurine Cooperage – the lone cooperage of France’s Rhone Valley. Due to limited volume, we were only able to spare our best two barrels of this wine in 2017.
Production Notes
Destemmed but not crushed to open-top, 3⁄4-ton bins. Lot was left ~20% whole cluster. Cold-soaked 24 hours, then inoculated with specially selected yeasts (Rhone2056 & VRB). Hand punched 3-4 times daily. Inoculated with Malolactic bacteria (Omega) around 7 Brix. Pressed at dryness after 10 days skin contact. Settled 2 days before barreling.

I would rather have this wine over an Hermitage blend any day.

We tasted 50+ wines in Arizona this January and this wine was the showstopper of the trip. Hands down one of my favorite wines of all time.
