Every vintage of our bottling of Doctor's Vineyard Syrah stands out for its extraordinary depth and stunning complexity.  This 2013 is no exception.  As with its predecessors, it is a compelling amalgam of earth, leather, spice, pepper and blackberries.  The firm tannins are submerged under a thick layer of ripe fruit flavors.  This is a serious Syrah that will benefit from extended aging in a cool, dark cellar.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Doctor’s Vineyard is one of the most celebrated sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA. Located west of the town of Soledad, it is an exquisite parcel perched along the slopes above the Salinas Valley. Of the 243 acres of grapes, 193 acres are planted to Pinot Noir (11 clones), 45.5 acres are planted to Syrah (five clones) with the remainder planted to Malbec. The vineyard was certified sustained by the CCVT in 2011. Wines from the Doctor’s Vineyard are uniformly dark, dense, supple, opulent, structured and distinctive.
