After hand-picking, the vinification of this 100% Syrah wine began with hand sorting, eight day cold soaking, and thirteen days of fermenting in an open top fermentor where we utilized traditional foot-treading to better integrate the destemmed fruit with the whole clusters. The native ferment occurred without additional yeasts or nutrients. Once fermentation began, the grapes were gently punched down by hand two to three times each day until the fermentation process reached completion. Fruit was introduced to a traditional basket press and aged in 50% neutral French Oak and 50% new French Oak barrels. This wine earned the title best tasting barrels in the winery” during the course of its eighteen month aging process.

Layered with dark, chewy flavors and juicy tannins, this wine is the mature counterpart to our Just Because 2020 carbonic Syrah. The fruit was hand-picked from the esteemed Homestead Vineyard in the Willow Creek District and divided into two wines; the quick élevage of Just Because 2020, and this traditionally fermented Syrah, aptly named The Bedfellow for its alliance to the younger counterpart.
