2016 Ghostwriter Syrah, Santa Cruz County

Lighter than what you might expect from Syrah, maybe lighter than what you might expect from a Pinot Noir, but delicious with a quiet earthiness and a peppery spice that stays on the palate. Like 2015, the 2016 has taken some time to come around. I think it is safe to say that this wine is still far from it's prime. Fermented with 100% whole clusters in barrels that we pulled the heads off of and aged in small barrels for 19 months. Bottled in the winter of 2018. 64 cases produced
