I have a love-hate relationship with Texas Syrah. It can be such a lovely thing but it is vintage specific. In 2019 the fruit came in looking beautiful and we were able to do a long cold soak. We allowed a partial spontaneous fermentation before deciding to inoculate for complexity. This wine changed dramatically while in barrel, sometimes in confusing ways. Syrah is definitely a tricky grape but we are always excited and hopeful for the chance to make it special.
