2013 Sean Boyle Syrah 750ML
This wine is handcrafted from nurtured vines. The vines experience a coastal influence of moderately warms days and cool moist nights that product intense varietal fruit. The grapes were gently de-stemmed, fermented whole berry and aged in small oak barrels. This wine was bottle unfiltered and unfined.
The 2013 growing season was temperate and dry. The grape clusters were uniform, clean, and packed with intense flavor profiles of black cherry, black berry, blue berry, plum with a white pepper finish.
The Lester Family Ranch contains three hundred fifty acres on the eastern ridge of Pleasant Valley. It is situated one mile from our winery and is a shot distance from the Monterey Bay. The vineyards are south facing and possess their own unique micro-climates with warm days and tempered nights allowing the vines to gradually produce and mature fruit with intense varietal characteristics and complexity. The vines and the grapes clusters they produce are selectively nurtured, gently hand pruned, hedged, de-leafed and harvested. This wine is exclusively from select blocks. This Syrah was made from whole berry fruit. This wine was aged exclusively in small American and French oak barrels of medium toast that were held in environmentally controlled chambers.
