Wine maker notes
2010. Ruby red color. Intense ripe fruit with cacao aromas and spices such as black pepper, anise and cardamom. On the palate, there is a nice fruit expression with velvety tannins and refreshing acidity. This Syrah also has a long lasting finish.
An ideal companion for game and lamb well seasoned dishes.

Technical notes
The fall winter 2009, with the exception of June, was much drier and cooler than usual with about 30% less rainfall in our vineyards. September was also cold, so bud break happened a bit later than last season. The spring showed normal amounts of rainfall but with very low temperatures. These cold conditions disturbed the pollination and naturally lowered the yields. Fortunately, during second half of December the normal sunny conditions returned. At that point the plants had from 8 to 10 days of delay in their development. Summer brought us cool nights preserving the grapes freshness and inducing the concentration of aromas. Summer also brought the 5th biggest world earthquake ever recorded, so the few days delay of the crop were a blessing in order to organize the winery and get ready to crush the grapes.
