2013 Hartford Outer Limits Syrah

"Black fruits, blonde tobacco and lilac aromas are supported by ripe blueberry and black currant flavors, and tannins that express the wine’s mountaintop sourcing. This dense and spicy Syrah was crafted in a style reminiscent of the great wines of the Northern Rhone Valley." - Jeff Stewart, Winemaker

Tasting Notes

Black fruits, blond tobacco and lilac aromas are supported by ripe blueberry and black currant flavors, and tannins that express the wine’s mountaintop sourcing. This dense and spicy Syrah was crafted in a style reminiscent of the great wines of the Northern Rhộne Valley.

Vineyard & Vintage Character

Our Outer Limits™ Vineyard Syrah comes from an estate vineyard located on a windswept ridge area near Annapolis, four miles from the Pacific Ocean at 900 foot elevation. The soils are Goldridge series on top of much older bedrock, which drives a balance between fruit, complexity and structure.
