2010 Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah
Fenaughty Vineyard Syrah illustrates why we believe in El Dorado for Rhone varietals. 2010 another cool year producing a Syrah that illustrates the power and beauty of the varietal. We left 30% Syrah whole cluster and included 2.5% co-fermented Fenaughty Viognier.

Tobacco, earth and herms intermingled with violets grab your olfactory immediately. With a moment to breathe mineral, fresh meat and spice box come to the fore. Red fruits like cherry, plum and raspberry tickle the palate. Long, firmly structured yet smooth tannins coat the mouth and linger for minutes while you ponder what this wine is and what it will become.
