Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

2012 Stillman Brown Colossus Syrah, Paso Robles 750ml 2-Pack

This clone 877 Syrah vineyard, high on the west side of Paso Robles, was planted in 1998 and in 2012 only yielded 1 bottle per vine (equivalent to 1 ton/acre at 1,000 vines/acre which is approximately the case here). I instituted severe leaf thinning after the last heat wave and delayed harvest until full flavor ripeness and seed lignification, which didn't occur until over 29 brix.

The alcohol level was reached through selected yeast fermentation, the wine is neither fortified nor sweet. Fear not, this is no flabby, baked raisin wine, nor is it portlike - far from it; the blackberry extract is fresh and extremely full and rich, and spices and oak emerge immediately, and the finish is very long without excess heat.  Do not be ideo-enologically prejudiced against the high alcohol and youth; it shows fabulously. 

If you insist on pairing it with food, be warned – even BBQd wolverines fight back.

Winery Details

Zeppelin Winery

Owner:
Stillman Brown
Founded:
2009
Location:
New Mexico and San Miguel, CA

Zeppelin Winery is a very small producer of super premium wines, based on the Central Coast of California. Founded in 2009 by winemaker Stillman Brown of Red Zeppelin Winery and wine veteran Dan Lewis (he's the office guy) they produce tiny lots of Syrah and other misunderstood varietals, with almost invariably insane labels.  Most can only be purchased directly, but once in a while they emerge into the light of day.
