Winemaker’s Tasting Notes

History

Roman Coppola, a Syrah aficionado fond of both the Australian heavyweights as well as the more pedigreed Syrah-based wines from Northern Rhone, worked with the Inglenook winemaking team to create an estate Syrah that combines the nuance and texture of ‘old world’ Syrah with the powerful fruit of ‘new world’ Syrah. Our terroir creates envious conditions for producing a rich, opulent wine, our RC Reserve Syrah.

Vintage

Rainfall in winter and spring of 2017 was bountiful, totaling nearly 50 inches. These conditions allowed for a smooth transition into bloom and fruit set. Harvest for the organically-farmed fruit used to produce our 2017 RC Reserve Syrah began on September 1st and concluded within days.
