’09

baby bear

  syrah 

Baking spices, cumin and a lavender nose lead the senses into a mouthful of debaucherously nuanced flavors… toffee, black cherry and plum cobbler to name a few!

The inaugural vintage 2008 ‘Baby Bear’ was conceived as a small production Syrah to celebrate the year of my son’s birth. This 2009 vintage was bottled on the 1st day of summer after a long hibernation in Taransaud French oak puncheons…

this Baby was then awoken from slumber, and is ready to roar!
