2019 Reserve Syrah
We only produce a Reserve Syrah from the best vintages, and 2019 marks the first time since 2014 that we’ve made one. Jespersen Ranch’s cool, coastal environment can make ripening Syrah difficult. But the 2019 growing season finished with plenty of sunshine, allowing us to hand-harvest the grapes at the end of October at perfect ripeness. We fermented the grapes in stainless steel tanks and aged the wine in French oak barrels, half of which were new. The finished wine was so stunning on its own that we bottled it as a single varietal, 100% Syrah. Drink now through 2028.
