From the response to our recent vintages of Syrah, it is evident consumers are finally responding to cool climate Syrah. The 2017 vintage was a good vintage but yields for Syrah were way down and our production followed suit. We are not back to the 2010 and 2011 low production numbers (100 cases anyone?) but we have realized that Syrah may be a heavy cropper in warm areas, but out here in the cold hinterlands, we are lucky to get a ton and a half an acre. So, like last year, we will not have much Syrah to offer you but we what we have is good. Really good. La Bruma features more of the blue fruit and floral character of the variety though it is not soft and juicy. The frame of the wine is taut with a spine of acidity and aromas of slate, leather, and dried blood lingering on the finish. The 2017 La Bruma is yummy now and will get better with even more time in the bottle and your decanter.
