Skinner Vineyards 2012 Syrah, Estate

Syrah is a very versatile varietal and has the ability to produce great wines in various climates and regions. Styles and profiles vary as you move from the cooler coastal sites towards the warmer interior vineyards. Our Fair Play (El Dorado) Syrah is elegant and rustic in nature.

Tasting Notes

This is our inaugural Estate Syrah, which was grown at our Stoney Creek Vineyard in Fair Play at 2700’ in elevation. This wine is co-fermented with 3% Viognier which helps lift aromatics and helps to set the color. A splash of Petite Sirah and Mourvedre complement the flavors and polish the tannins. The wine spends about 30 months in French oak prior to being bottled unfined and unfiltered

This is always the more polished Syrah of the two we produce, containing a rich and supple mouthfeel with ample structure on the long and enveloping finish. The wine has aromatics of black and blue fruit, dark chocolate, leather, dried apricot, dried flowers, and tobacco.

Syrah 2009

Score: 87

This rich, gutsy, muscle-bound effort is dense, chewy and tannic, with a loamy earth edge to the dried dark berry flavors, this never quite shakes a rustic edge of dried herb. Drink now through 2020. 397 cases made.
