’18

baby bear

  syrah 

From an outstanding vintage marked by a long, slow ripening season, the 2018 Baby Bear Syrah is a handsome, intensely colored wine loaded with wild blackberry, fresh blueberry, and dark, spicy aromas and flavors. A streak of olive tapenade, smoked charcuterie, and freshly cracked black pepper add interest across a textured palate laced with silky tannins and vibrant acidity. The finish is long and refined.

Handpicked grapes were de-stemmed and then traveled through an optical sorter to ensure only the best fruit was moved to stainless steel tanks for primary fermentation. After that, the wine was transferred to new, Taransaud puncheons (600L) and matured slowly to integrate the fruit and oak fully, further developing the wine’s refined, complex flavors and a lush mouthfeel.
