For Premiere Napa Valley 2007 we have chosen to showcase a unique lot of our 2005 PlumpJack Syrah. Grown entirely on the Hudson Vineyard in Carneros, our lot consists of a unique site off of Henry Drive and clonal selection "Syrah Noir." Fermented in open-top bins and 50% whole cluster, the Syrah was punched down three times a day until drained directly to barrel. From the lot we isolated one new Francois Freres burgundy barrel for Premiere Napa Valley. Once bottled, the 2005 PlumpJack Syrah will have aged for 18 months in new French oak.
