more about this wine

The Bed­fel­low 2021 Syrah is a tes­ta­ment to the art of pre­ci­sion wine­mak­ing, a wine that embod­ies ele­gance. Hand­picked in the ear­ly morn­ing hours, the grapes under­went metic­u­lous sort­ing, ensur­ing that only the most pris­tine fruit found its way into the open-top vessel.

50% of the grapes were kept intact as whole clus­ters, impart­ing a grace­ful bal­ance of tan­nins and cool cli­mate sub­tleties. The remain­ing fruit was gen­tly destemmed, allow­ing for a har­mo­nious fusion of fruit qual­i­ties. Native fer­men­ta­tion unfold­ed at a cool and unhur­ried pace, embrac­ing the skins for a remark­able 34 days. Old-fash­ioned foot tread­ing was applied to fur­ther draw out the nuanced tannins.

Fol­low­ing a gen­tle bas­ket press, the juice was left to set­tle before being trans­ferred to French oak bar­riques. There, it matured for eigh­teen months, with 50% of the bar­rels being new and the remain­ing bar­rel time in neu­tral oak. This atten­tive wine­mak­ing process yields a Paso Rob­les Syrah that defies expec­ta­tion, boast­ing low­er brix and alco­hol lev­els, yet exud­ing ele­gance and finesse in every sip.

Jammy blackberries, black raspberries, pepper, and cedary herb notes all emerge from the 2021 The Bedfellow, an über-ripe (tasting, not from the alcohol) Syrah that’s medium to full-bodied, up-front, and ready to go. Jeb Dun­nuck (Aug. 30th 2023)
