From the winery: "Failla winemaker Ehren Jordan and grape grower Lee Hudson go way back -- all the way back to Ehren's days at Neyers where he made Chardonnay, Syrah, and Grenache from this esteemed southwestern Napa Valley Site. The vineyard sits pretty on a 2,000-acre ranch that Lee purchased in 1979 and slowly developed into one of Napa Valley's most recognizable vineyard names. This close association has allowed Failla to enjoy vineyard-designate status from Hudson since 2010 with inaugural releases of both Chardonnay and Syrah.
Failla’s Syrah block comes from a distinctly different parcel than the Chardonnay. Block 3 is planted on the adjacent, expanded Henry Road property, slightly further north and nestled in a valley between steep hillsides, protecting it from the prevailing northwestern-moving Carneros winds.
Planted in 1997 on Haire series soil, the Syrah is exposed to cool nights and moderately warm days, providing a long growing season and even ripening. Despite being so far inland, there has even been evidence of sea creature fossils found in the rocks scattered throughout the vineyard.
A wonderful foil to our cooler climate Estate Vineyard, the Hudson Syrah is similarly vinified on 100% whole clusters and is treated to human-powered punchdowns - aka foot treading - during harvest. Aging in mostly used French oak barrels allows for the distinctive floral, spice and savory aromas to balance the naturally rugged and robust palate."
