2014 LA CROCE

BACKGROUND
When we hear a good winemaking idea we try it, and if it works, we go big.  In the case of La Croce, we fell in love with our first vintage, 2001, and by 2004, we planted 8 acres of high density vineyard, half to Syrah and half to Sangiovese.  By harvesting the hill together, La Croce has become a true field-blend.  
The goal of La Croce is to marry the high-toned cherry Sangiovese fruit with the savory, earthy notes of Syrah.  Through picking and fermenting together, the two varietals further integrate, or “Cross” to create one beautiful red wine.
 
 
VINTAGE
The warm days and pleasant evenings of 2014 led to dark, dense red wines across our line-up.  The warmer weather led to a new level of boldness in the always powerful La Croce. 
 
 
AT THE WINERY
50% Sangiovese 50% Syrah fermented together in open top, unsealed concrete fermenters.  Only free-run juice is incorporated into the final blend to ensure fine tannins on the finish.
 
 
SENSORY
In its youth red toned Sangiovese fruit shines through the aroma and palate, dominating the darker, meatier Syrah notes.  Syrah’s presence can be detected by subtle roasted meat and herb flavors.  Young and sharp upon popping the cork, the 2014 La Croce begins to open up with a few minutes open or better yet, decanted.

Received the 2014 La Croce in the October 2016 wine club shipment. Saving one and drinking one now. Bright acidity, fruit forward with cherry from the sangiovese. Medium tannins, great structure
