Stellar Syrah is a single vineyard, 100% Syrah from our estate vineyard.
This wine opens with heady aromas of spice, white pepper and smoke, combined with a powerful blast of ripe fruit. On the palate, Stellar Vineyard’s pronounced natural acidity is evident, elevating initial flavors of currants and raspberries. Plum, apricot and black cherry predominate mid-palate, swirling about plush tannins. Echoes of dried figs, coffee and licorice complete the lengthy finish. As a winemaker, I am enamored of this wine and its ability to transport the taster to someplace exotic and ancient. Perhaps my best wine to date.
Only 60 cases produced. This syrah is the first release featuring fruit from Stephenson Cellars' Estate Vineyard "Stellar" Vineyard.
