2001 Syrah, Santa Barbara County

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Bedford 01 Syrah yellow webThis is our signature wine. We are most fortunate to have great Syrah to deal with from the first harvest in 1994 from the Thompson Vineyard in Los Alamos. The south facing hillside location along with low tonnage produced grapes of excellent concentration, robust, dark crimson color, and equally rich flavors. We use our usual protocol for reds: cold soaked the fruit for 24 hours prior to an open top fermentation for 28 days, and employed “delestage”, a process that aerates the red grape juice must, which in turn, optimizes the aromatics, flavor and texture. The Syrah is put to barrel to age for about 20 months. The wine is intense with a generous fruit character suggesting blackberry, mulberry, and Oriental spices. Its rich, lush quality, smoky, berry bouquet is joined on the palate by a touch of toasty oak. This big, juicy wine is well matched with red meats and any hearty cuisine.  Bottle Price: $30.00  ALMOST SOLD OUT!
