1999 Napa Syrah
- Tech Sheet
Blend and Grape Sources
100% estate-grown Syrah from Yountville and Carneros.
Compared to some of the previous vintages, anxiety levels were mild as the 1999 harvest approached and we observed grapes ripening to maturity after a long, cool growing season. Warm weather in late September/early October accelerated sugars, and in our Syrah vineyards the extended season resulted in dark fruit color, smoky/spicy aromas, and ripe, extractive flavors.
