2021 Syrah, Seven 750ML

2021 Syrah, Seven 750ML

The 2021 Seven is comprised of 95% Syrah, 3% Grenache and 2% Viognier sourced from top-flight vineyards in Sta. Rita Hills and Ballard Canyon: 50% Stolpman (Ballard Canyon / Sustainable), 30% Spear (Sta. Rita Hills/Cert. Organic), 15% Kimsey (Ballard Canyon / Cert. Organic), 5% John Sebastiano (Sta. Rita Hills/Organic). The wine was aged in neutral French oak (228L barriques, 400L, and 500L puncheons) for 9 months before being blended and then returned to barrel for an additional 8 months aging before bottling. 

We are thrilled with the performance of this wine, as it is already beginning to show explosive, complex aromatics (red, blue and black fruits, spices and meats), lovely texture with vibrant, layered red, blue and purple fruits, but also plenty of acidity and tannic structure to provide a long finish for such a young wine. We expect this wine to continue to develop for 5-10 years and to last for well over a decade after that. 

This wine was rated 94 points by Antonio Galloni at Vinous and 93+ points Jeb Dunnuck. Limited. Only 575 cases produced.
