CABOT 2008 SYRAH HUMBOLDT COUNTY 750mL

This is John Cabot's Syrah that smells like bacon fat. You're welcome! Winery's Notes: "The 2008 vintage in Humboldt was an ideal year. We started with an early bud break and received very even temperatures throughout the growing season. The crop was very small this year due to inclement weather during the bloom period. We were lucky to have no real heat events and ten days of cool weather preceding harvest. This allowed this small crop to become balanced in its sugar, acid, and flavor components. The fruit was picked in the last week of Sept through the first week of oct and 24- 25.5 brix and each block was fermented separately in small one ton fermenters, pressed at dryness and transferred to 3 yr. old French oak barrels where they sat, on the lees, for two years before bottling, unfined and unfiltered. . It is a blend of three of our estate vineyards, Henderson Hill, Ishi Pishi Ranch and Kimberly’s.

"The resulting wine is full and rich, with a tremendous mid palate presence. It displays a nose of black pepper, red meat, black fruits and spice. This wine exhibits all of the characters we love about Syrah from this region. It is full, long and spicy with blackberry, dark red cherry, tons of cracked pepper and Christmas spices. We chose five barrels that would display the range of flavors and aromas each soil/site has to offer. "
