Truchard Syrah Carneros
Description: Tasting Notes: "Rich aromas of blackberry, plum, and blueberry; with hints of vanilla, earth, and white pepper. The mouth is filled with jammy flavors of cassis, boysenberry, and black cherry; followed by mineral and cracked black pepper. Mouth-filling tannins provide an opulent finish of fruit and spice."

Winemaker's Notes: "All of the fruit was gently destemmed and crushed into open top fermenters with approximately 20% whole berries. Individual lots were inoculated with Pasteur Red yeast. Fermentations were punched down twice daily, with the temperature peaking at 88 F. After 14 days of maceration, each lot was pressed and allowed to settle in tank before go-ing to barrel. The wine was aged for 10 months in both French (90%) and American (10%) oak; 30% of these barrels were new. Rackings occurred every 4 months until bottling in August of 2012. This wine is drinkable upon release, but will reward careful cellaring for the next 7-10 years."
