2013 The Conspirator's Reserve

91 POINTS - Wine Enthusiast

93 POINTS, Gold Medal - 2017 World Wine Championships

We gave our 2013 Reserve Syrah a little extra time in barrel and an additional year of bottle aging before release. Sourced once again from the tiny Fairbairn Vineyard, the brambly dense black fruit gave us a dry, spicy Syrah, packed with earthiness and blackcurrant flavors. The Conspirator will be a mysterious but welcome guest at any dinner table.

Fairbairn Vineyard is a unique and wonderful site. Without trellising, the unruly, head trained vines are reminiscent of wild brambleberry bushes. The vines are dry farmed and in their struggle to survive without irrigation, produce fruit with intense, concentrated flavors. We took care to preserve the expression of the vineyard's character in the finished wine.
Wine Enthusiast's Matt Kettmann describes the wine this way, "fresh-pressed blackberry, violet and lilac aromas, with the slightest wafts of smoke and tar. Although the tannins are quite firm on the sip, this wine is still young and should age well, allowing the bright acidity to continue showing flavors of beef and tart berries in years to come."
