K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "The Originals Syrah cuvée incorporates only the initial Syrah plantings that Tom Stolpman put into the ground in 1992. These vines are not only our Original planting, but they are the oldest vines in Ballard Canyon AVA. The wine made from these vines generated the Syrah-planting fervor which eventually led to the publication of Ballard Canyon AVA - the only appellation in the United States dedicated to the grape Syrah. Piercing, intense red fruit leading into quintessential Ballard Canyon Syrah blueberry all combine to create an impressive first impression. The beautiful burst of upfront bouquet is backed by serious, deep minerality and meaty savoriness - but all the while, the bright fruit shines persistently through. The savory edge of the spectrum even cuts to the edge of salt and brine and conjures up my favorite cut of beef - the worshipped, succulently textured dry-aged ribeye 'cap'. On the finish, well contained, elegant tannin rounds out the one-two punch of freshness and richness."
