"This is the second crop off what had been an abandoned vineyard adjacent to Barsotti, renovated by grower Ron Mansfield. In 2014, it provided the fruit for the only syrah Steve Edmunds produced. For numbers geeks, it might be interesting that Edmunds harvested this wine in early September, when the Brix levels were between 20.4 and 20.7, the pH below 3.4. Fermented without stems or added yeasts and aged in neutral French oak barrels, the wine captures the brisk flavors of mountain-grown fruit in notes of wild blueberries, forest mushrooms and burdock root. It feels bony at first, then seems to gain generosity as it takes on air, predicting long development in the bottle if you’re patient."
"Roughly 3.4 tons of Syrah grapes picked September 2nd. Grapes were de-stemmed into half-ton bins, and fermentation took place over a 15 day period, without inoculation. As the cap formed, skins were punched down manually, morning and evening. Brix at harvest was between 20.4 and 20.7, pH below 3.4. At dryness, the wine was pressed into French barrels that had held 13 previous vintages of red wine. Malolactic fermentation was spontaneous, after which a bit of SO2 was added, and the wine settled in barrel, and was left on lees until late February, when it was racked into stainless. Bottling was done in early Summer, 2015. Alcohol by volume is 11.9%."
