2017 Quivet Cellars Syrah, Whole Cluster, Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Calistoga, Napa Valley

Vineyard
Kenefick Ranch Vineyard, Clone 7

Wine Profile
Just a luscious crowd-pleasing Syrah. Blue fruits galore in all spectrums. Round with deep layers yet has plenty of cut and energy. Our ripest and most new world style Syrah in the Quivet portfolio. The 100% foot-tread whole cluster element adds a beautiful mid palate lift and white pepper spice to the core of this wine, giving it a little more verve than its more dense sister.

Palate Impressions
Deep purple color and boysenberry explode across the entire entry. The nose is graham with slight berry pie and dashes of white pepper. The plush mid palate is punctuated with hints if tobacco, coffee notes with an aromatic floral lift. Nicely finishes with a layered lavender, red currants and a staying power that goes on and on.

Quivet Context
A stone's throw from the famed Eisele Vineyard, Kenefick Ranch is nestled on the Western slopes of the Palisades Mountain Range in North Napa Valley, where natural beauty abounds and inspiration prevails. This bench land beauty has the ability to ripen any varietal earlier than most parts of Napa Valley.  The attention to detail in the vineyard is without compare.  We are even known to fine tune our picks to the point of harvesting the sunny side of the vine weeks before the shaded.  Quivet produces both Cabernet and Syrah from the premium block on the most Eastern slopes of the vineyard.  Excellent drainage, rocky soils, warm Calistoga days and cool nights bless this site with rich, boastful grapes that fill our wines with stunning blue fruits yet compliment them with polished structure
