Features

2006 Purisima Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley 750ml
Deep ruby. Intensely perfumed bouquet of violet, boysenberry, olive tapenade and cracked pepper. Classic Syrah on the nose and palate, which offers sweet red and dark berry flavors and notes of olive, floral pastille and peppery spices. Suave and expansive Syrah with impressive finishing clarity and persistence.

The Harvest
2006 was slow to evolve and with the cool winds out of the Santa Rita Hills blowing at the higher elevation of Purisima, we did not begin harvest here until November 4th. Purisima Mountain's high elevations (reaching upwards of 1,250 feet) influence climatic factors such as moisture, temperature and exposure. The climate is also influenced by marine air drawn up from the Pacific Ocean through the Santa Ynez Valley, which brings morning fog and cool ocean breezes in the summer afternoons. These cooling factors ensure moderate temperatures that allow for a longer, steadier ripening period, leading to superior grapes.
 
The Production
This wine was fermented with 50% whole cluster to about 34 degrees centigrade. Lots were pressed directly to barrel and aged for 26 months before being bottled without fining or filtration.

2006 Stolpman Syrah, Santa Ynez Valley 750ml
Opaque purple. High-pitched blackberry and cherry aromas are complemented by notes of violet and dried rose, along with a smoky undertone. Fleshy and smooth, with sweet red and dark berry flavors and gentle tannins. Gains depth with air and finishes with good grip and a building note of sexy, sweet oak spices. This should be drinking well in the next few years.

Winery Details

Arcadian Winery

Owner:
Joe Davis
Founded:
1996
Location:
Lompoc, CA
Inspired by the great traditions of Burgundian winemaking, Joseph Davis has been making Arcadian Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Syrah in California's Central Coast region since 1996. Using French artisan methods and hands-on vineyard management, Joe's Arcadian label consistently receives high marks from the world's most respected wine writers. Following his gut instinct allows him the complete realization of his dream and his mission remains to make wines that fully express the uniqueness of the vineyard and the region while capturing the voluptuous flavor of the grape and the kiss of cool California breezes and warm sunshine.
 
Traditionally, Joe harvests fruit with much more modest sugar levels and much higher natural acidity than many of his fellow growers. The belief that Arcadian wines will continue to evolve in the bottle for years to come and that this continued evolution will ultimately produce a much more interesting wine is what drives Arcadian's--and Joe's---philosophy of winegrowing.
