Acreage: 0.94 acres
Varietals: Syrah (Clone 101-14)
At the top of our Right Bank vineyard is a one acre “hot spot” where we have planted cool climate Noir clone Syrah. A favorite of owner Suzanne, and this extremely limited production Syrah is one of her personal favorites. While it is uncommon to discover Syrah planted in our part of the Willamette Valley, this varietal thrives in these extreme conditions and produces a wine that offers a unique depth and spice to complement our Pinot Noir selections.
Our debut bottling of our Estate Syrah was 2008 and we produced three barrels, or 69 cases. We have since expanded our Syrah wines with vintages during the warm vintages of 2009, 2012, and 2014. Most of our Syrah is allocated to our Wine Club Members a but a limited amount is occasionally released in the tasting room and online.
