Horsepower Sur Echalas Vineyard Syrah 2013


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

With 3-foot by 3-foot spacing and 4,840 vines per acre, the 2 acre Sur Echalas Vineyard of Syrah and Grenache is the highest density planting in the Walla Walla Valley, and one of the highest in North America. The self-nourishing interrelationship of earth, plants and animals has been central to vigneron Christophe Baron's farming philosophy ever since he pioneered biodynamic farming in the Walla Walla Valley in 2002.

Wine AdvocateUp with the top three or four Syrahs in the vintage, the 2013 Syrah Sur Echalas Vineyard, which was bottled in August of last year, offers a complex, savory, mineral-laced style to go with a complex bouquet of ground herbs, pepper, beef blood, dried flower and cured meats. This is a full-bodied Syrah that has considerable mid-palate density, fine tannin and good overall freshness (although I'm sure the pH is 4 or higher). Like the 2012, it needs 2-3 years of bottle age and will drink well for 15 years or more.
