2011 "Shepherd" Syrah

We sourced the fruit for our 2011 "Shepherd" Syrah from "Salmon Safe" and LIVE certified Steelhead Run Vineyard in the Applegate Valley, Oregon.

The wine was aged 20 months in a combination of new and neutral French Oak barrels using native yeast fermentation. A classic northern Rhone style with notes of black pepper, dark cherry and licorice; the spice will intensify with bottle aging.

114 cases produced.

Please note, we have a three bottle minimum order to ship wine, mix or match.
