SKU: 2015 Syrah

The Spring of 2015 found us unearthing burial canes after a hard November freeze caused stress across the valley. Due to unusual heat, harvest came roughly 2-3 weeks earlier than our historical average, and as expected with burial canes our overall production was smaller than normal. But the vines themselves performed beautifully, producing small, densely concentrated berries and yet another unique and distinctive taste of our estate vineyard.

Upon first impression the 2015 is brighter, with slightly more tannin and acidity as compared to previous vintages. The mouthfeel is silky smooth and luscious, and is full of dark fruit, cherry, plum and wet stone minerality. A dark finish offers swirling notes of semisweet chocolate, espresso, smoke and charred meat. Proper’s 2015 offering is distinctly from the winery’s estate Rocks District terroir, yet is a unique expression of what was an unusual but exciting growing season.
