foggy picking day Originally planted to cherries in 1910 by the Pedroia family, this cool–climate Syrah vineyard sits atop a majestic ridge peering into the Freestone Valley. Harvested in early November 2011 with extended hang time, a severe late season fruit drop was necessary to ripen the select clusters from this coastal Syrah site, and draconian selections in both vineyard and cellar yielded a very limited production of the 2011 Cherry Camp.

The 2011 Cherry Camp Syrah has a deep cardinal red center with a magenta rim in the glass. At first approach, a mélange of high toned summer berries wafts over your nose. After a few swirls, this wine opens up to a darker and more savory character. Images of warm planks of sandalwood stained with plum juice may fill the mind with the first sip. A graceful entry is followed by a midpalate of pure fruit tinged with sweet briar. This cool climate Syrah speaks of the Sonoma Coast.
