4 - 2013 Syrah, Deerfield Vineyard, Sonoma Valley
 
2013 Syrah, Deerfield Vineyard, Sonoma Valley
This Syrah has a beautiful rich purple color with dark fruit aromas of plum and blackberry mingled with light mushroom and wet forest floor.  The bright acidity balances the round tannins leading to a soft yet firm mouthfeel.  Pair with pork, lamb or smoked meat, as well as medium – strong cheeses.
 
Deerfield Vineyard
Deerfield Vineyard is located in Kenwood, CA right in the heart of the Sonoma Valley AVA.  The grapes are grown organically on Deerfield Ranch Winery’s Estate Vineyard.  The vineyard is surrounded by historic wetlands which keep the soil rich with water and nutrients.
 
Winemaking Techniques
The grapes were all hand-harvested by Mike and Deerfield’s crew.  At the winery they go through a triple hand sorting system removing as much of the MOG (Material Other than Grape – leaves, stems, etc.) as possible.  The grapes are not crushed, they are whole berry fermented which causes the fruit to ferment from the inside out. Rhone strain yeast was used to inoculate the fermentation.  malolactic bacteria were used to inoculate the wine in order to get the wine to go through secondary fermentation.   The wine was aged in neutral French oak barrels for 28 months.
 
Winemaker’s Notes
This Syrah is an attempt to make a “Cali-Euro-Centric” Syrah.  Big, bold, dark fruit mixed with slight earthiness gives this Syrah multi-dimensional aromas and flavors.  Integrated round tannins combined with bright acidity lend it to aging for 7+ years.  This wine is unfined & unfiltered.  Yes- it may throw some sediment.

Winery Details

Engracia

My Grandmother, Engracia Perez Hernandez, fled Cuba in 1960 with my mother due to the political events that were taking place during that time. She immigrated to the United States without knowing the language and without having a job. She had very little money and she was uncertain of what the future would hold for her and my mother.
 
In her 47 years of life in Florida, she was extremely successful. She raised a daughter on her own, owned her own home and was never in debt. She was full of life and dedicated herself to her family every day until she passed away in the summer of 2007. The passion she had for herself, her daughter, and her grandchildren to give them the best life they could ever have was incredible. I feel that same passion within me. It is this passion that confirms my belief that you can accomplish anything you want in life as long as you stay focused on your goals and work hard for them.
 
I left Florida in 2005 to pursue my dream of making wine. Several years later I am realizing my dream and I continue to feel my grandmother’s drive, passion, and love within me.
 
“There is nothing better in life than great wine, great food and great company”
 
Be sure to enjoy this wine with friends and loved ones; the wine will taste much better.
