2011 LAWER VINEYARD, KNIGHTS VALLEY

Description
 

Lawer is an amphitheater-shaped vineyard tucked back in the Knights Valley AVA in Sonoma. We farm the top section of this southwest facing slope, planted to the Rhone clone 877 on volcanic soils. 2011 was a cool vintage in Sonoma, with early October rains complicating picking dates. Lawer is well-drained and protected, so we picked very clean fruit under sunny skies on October 21. We decided against any whole cluster inclusion and shortened skin contact in the tank, resulting in our most elegant Lawer syrah to date. As is our custom with Lawer, we allowed the 2011 generous time on the cork before release.

Opaque. Beguiling nose of bacon fat, raspberry and iron rich graphite. The dark fruit viscosity is buffered by structure and acidity, leading into a focused, pure finish. Very approachable now with a decant and this vintage will age gracefully.
