2019 CJ's Barrel Syrah
2019 was a year of mild temperatures in keeping with the maritime influence of our cool climate. We concentrated our efforts on using grapes from two clone varieties and making use of whole clusters to increase the complexity and intensity of this year’s CJ’s Barrel Syrah. Following the aging process, we selected barrels that best represented this year’s climate, seeking a balance between freshness and creaminess as well as between herbs and fruits on the palate. The result is a wine containing a fruit-forward expression with notes of spices, raspberries and blueberries that burst across the tongue. While ready to uncork and enjoy now, the 2019 CJ’s Barrel will only improve through the years.
