Cuvaison's 2012 Estate Syrah has been released!



2012 Estate Syrah 
New Release  |  Estate Series 

Just a superb year for Syrah from a cool climate vineyard.
An axiom of winemaking is to grow varieties on the edge of
where they will ripen. The soils and climate of our Carneros Estate provide the challenges required to tame the prolific Syrah vine and sharpen the characteristics that define this variety. Add in a long, cool growing season like 2012 and you have the makings of an excellent vintage. Our 2012 bottling boasts a full range of Syrah-esque qualities; gamey, peppery, bacon-fat, mesquite, lavender and  rosemary notes backed with brambly cherry, boysenberry and blackberry fruit. The palate is full-bodied with rich, jammy fruit,
a touch of anise seed and long, silky tannins.
- Winemaker, Steven Rogstad
