2011 Bedrock Wine Co. Syrah North Coast

See wine details

From release mailer:

2011 North Coast Syrah: In 2011 I decided to take the painful step of declassifying both Alder Springs and Hudson T Syrah into a North Coast Syrah bottling along with Shanel Vineyard, a trace of Griffin’s Lair, and a dollop of Viognier from Steiner Ranch on Sonoma Mountain. The end result is a more complete wine, dare I say the best QPR Syrah bottling I have released, but it certainly makes for a slim margin! Alder Springs, which was harvested on Oct. 31st at 21.6 brix, adds lovely high tone perfume, while the Hudson fills out the mid palate and contributes its usual savage, animal character. Shanel was all pepper and anise. Add the mountain flowers of Steiner Vio and you have got yourself a killer wine. Though I liked the 2009, loved the aromatics on the 2010, this is the most complete introductory bottling Bedrock has released.
