    Winemaker's Notes:

    Vineyard
    The fruit for our VV2 Syrah is grown at our vineyard in Rutherford. The Voss Vineyard purchased in 1996 contains primarily clay loam soils, which encourage moderate vigor in the vines. When combined with an ideal climate of warm days and cool nites, this site gives Syrah rich in flavor and texture.

    Vintage
    The 2002 vintage began early with bud break occurring in mid March. March and most of April were warm, causing rapid vine growth. The end of April turned cold with several nights of frost. The weather warmed up in May with flowering in Syrah during the third week under partly cloudy skies. From June until August the weather was relatively cool, with daytime temperatures in the mid seventies to low eighties. This mild weather caused a slow ripening of the fruit, leading to a long "hang-time", which allows the flavor precursors to fully develop. September gave just enough heat to fully ripen the tannins before harvest.

    Winemaking
    After harvesting and crushing in the early morning, the Syrah fruit underwent a 3-day cold soak prior to fermentation. Cap management included both pump-overs and rack and returns to aerate the must and achieve full extraction. Just prior to dryness the tank was pressed to barrel to finish fermentation and spent 18 months in American oak.

    Winemaker's Notes
    The 2002 VV2 Syrah is deep red color and exhibits cherry, plum and mocha aromas. On the palate this wine offers bright berry flavours complemented by vanilla and toast notes. Supple tannins will allow this wine to age gracefully for the next 5 years.
