"The 2011 Syrah Cuvee Christine is a cross-vineyard blend from various sites. About 40% whole clusters were used along with indigenous yeasts, and the wine spent 22 months in 35% new French oak. There are 800 cases of this attractive wine that came in at 13.9% alcohol. Black cherry, black olive and forest floor scents jump from the glass of this dark ruby/purple-colored Syrah. Medium-bodied with excellent ripeness, supple tannins and a spicy, peppery, meaty finish, it should drink well for 4-5 years."
