Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
It has an array of complex notes, aromas, and flavors that can be enjoyed now, as it has had an optimal time of cellaring these past years. On the nose, it showcases stewed black plums coupled with black olives and hints of leather. From the first taste, it stuns with chocolate, cedar, and brambly red fruit. The mid-palate is rich and coating and the finish offers a lingering sense of licorice and mocha to round out the wine.
Vineyard Notes
At 2100 feet above sea level, the Monte Sereno Vineyard is located on the Western slopes of High Valley. The soil type here is of the Franciscan complex, providing a gravelly clay loam possessing very good drainage and slow permeability, causing the grapevines to struggle for nutrients and water. This special site is planted to the Syrah Noir clone of the Syrah family, whose origins would be from the Rhone valley in France.
Production Notes
At Brassfield Estate, our winemaking emphasizes quality and the use of traditional handcrafted techniques, which create wines that have both power and finesse. During harvest we used aerative pump overs and finished with extended maceration and heating of the must. After sending wine to barrels, we allowed our wine to undergo malolactic fermentation naturally in our caves. To showcase the fruit and structure of this wine, it was aged in 30% new French oak barrels and 70% neutral French oak barrels for 20 months. The wine was stirred monthly on its lees to achieve body and texture. This Monte Sereno Syrah was lightly fined, but bottled without filtration.
