About this product

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 youÂre patient. - W&S
