Our second syrah, Parkinson Vineyard, comes from a cool climate
region of the Napa Valley and shows off a whole different
style then our Mitchell Vineyard Syrah. We are excited to
show the differences and educate our consumers on the diversity
of the Syrah grape. This Napa Vineyard located off Dry Creek
Rd sits about 300 feet above the valley floor. The vineyard
is just over three acres in size and has all different exposures
to the sun (North, South, East and West).
Parkinson Vineyard was fermented in open top bins, punched
down twice a day. The wine finished fermentation in barrel.
A light filtration was used prior to bottling.
