2015 Drouthy Neebors Syrah
Drouthy Neebors Syrah immediately boasts a lovely floral bouquet evolving into a rich dark fruit expression, highlighted with blueberry and cassis. As the wine opens, Kalamata olives, peppercorns and anise add a savory layer of complexity, finishing with supple tannins and fresh acidity.
Bennett Valley Ranch comprises the majority of the Drouthy Neebors Syrah along with three other vineyards: Atoosa’s, Samantha’s and Moaveni. Bennett Valley Ranch is situated at the very top of Grange Road in the coolest area of the Bennett Valley AVA.
The vineyard was harvested in late September. The long-standing drought resulted in berries and clusters that were much smaller than normal, providing rich, concentrated flavors. For this vintage, our Drouthy Neebors wine club members voted for their favorite blend composition, which was 70% Bennett Valley Ranch, 10% each of Atoosa’s, Samantha’s and Moaveni vineyards.
