2014 Brittan Vineyards Syrah 1.5L

This is the seventh vintage of Brittan Vineyards Syrah. The Syrah was planted in 2005, replacing two blocks of Pinot Meunier that had been planted by the previous vineyard owners. This part of the vineyard has the heaviest concentration of broken basalt, resulting in low-yielding vines producing intense flavors and layers of complexity.

Vintage Notes: Winter in 2014 was non-existent, resulting in an earlier than normal bud break. Ideal conditions during bloom led to a large fruit set for the Willamette Valley. It is quite rare to have a vintage with both quality and quantity, but 2014 turned out to be just that, with the weather cooperating throughout the season leading to an early harvest. The resulting wines are seductive and rich while retaining the restraint and buoyancy of great winemaking in a great vintage. They are sure to gratify the palate now as well as in the years to come.

 

Tasting Notes: The 2014 Syrah offeres an exciting experession of our estate Syrah plantings.  On the nose, there are notes of cassis, blackberry and cracked pepper, with intriguing undertones of violet and black olive.  The palate displays the luscious flavors of tart cherry and Marionberry, underlined by silky tannins that are held in balance by the perfect level of acidity.

Production Notes: The fruit for the 2014 vintage was picked in early October and allowed to cold soak for five days before fermentation began. The wine was aged in French oak, 16% new, for 16 months.

Production: 5 cases of magnums
