2019 Kobler Family Vineyard Russian River Valley Syrah

Wine notes

We spontaneously fermented 100% whole clusters with native yeasts with gentle pumpovers and very light extraction before moving to 100% neutral French oak. 

This is a rich, cerebral Syrah brimming with boysenberry, blueberry, hints of tea leaf, and cracked black pepper. It commands attention as it evolves with time in the glass. Sip slowly, be in the moment, and enjoy. Pair with roasted pork shoulder.

Vineyard notes

Kobler Family Vineyard sits on a gentle hillside off of Gravenstein Highway, on the east side of Green Valley, a subzone of the Russian River Valley, where the coastal influence is strong. Jason took our kids with him when he went to sample the fruit for the first time. There’s a giant tire swing hanging from an old oak tree right in the middle of the vineyard, so there the kids were, kids swinging and laughing, as Michael and Jason tasted this brilliant Syrah. It’s a moment we’ll always hold onto.
