Hundred Suns Minuit Syrah Ciel du Cheval Vineyard 2015

This is special wine everyone told us not to make. We drew inspiration from wines we tasted that were raised in amphora, feeling that maybe this vessel could be the answer to peeling away some of the more ragged tannins created by fermenting Syrah 100% whole cluster. No sulfur was added, and the spontaneous fermentation was allowed to take over.  We switched between pump over and pigeage, finally only hand-pressing toward the end.  The resulting wines came out black, like midnight, with layers of fruit, spice, and texture.  Through elevage the wine blossomed, starting off with dark, brambly blue fruit then changing over to savory and bloody tones. After an additional six months in barrel, we couldn't be happier with the result. Our Syrah is rich and exotic, but most of all we believe it will keep you pondering long after the bottle is gone. Special thanks to Andrew Rich for selling us the grapes!
