Edna Valley can be a risky growing climate for Syrah which generally takes longer to ripen than other varietals, but a warm growing season in 2014 helped ripen the fruit slowly and we were able to  harvest at peak maturity. Our favorite thing about Jespersen Ranch Syrah is the signature black pepper note that is apparent from the very beginning in the grapes themselves. To preserve and accentuate that characteristic we choose oak barrels that have all been used for one vintage to create a soft oak impression and keep the pepper as the starring role. Bright raspberry jam is accentuated by our Syrah’s signature freshly-cracked black pepper + buttery shortbread notes. That combination of fresh fruit & spice is exactly why we love crafting this Syrah and the palate delivers a tart & lively personality with well-integrated tannins. Download tech sheet »
