2008 Madden Ranch Syrah
Livermore Valley

We are very excited about the Syrah grapes from John Madden's Livermore Valley vineyard. Madden Ranch has 20 acres of Concannon clone Syrah--one of the oldest Syrah clones in California--all on 5BB rootstock. Located on the warmer eastern edge of the Livermore Valley, there are three different vineyard blocks on the ranch, each with a different slope and aspect.

Grapes were harvested on September 30, 2008 and each lot was taken to our winery where a 3 day cold soak was followed by yeast inocculation. The wine was aged ina mixture of French and American oak for 18 months before bottling.

"Our 2008 Madden Ranch Syrah releases its fresh sromas of red cherry, blueberry, plum and roasted coffee from the glass. At first sip, the Syrahhas a myriad of juicy red and black fruits that fill the palate with intricate supporting flavors of chocolate, licorice, mushroom and nutmeg. This fruit-forward wine finishes with the lingering richness of plum and cherry and spicy notes of vanilla and cinnamon."--GJ
