20 Dos Padres Syrah Clone 471
PSC has been dedicated to crafting delicious Rhone-style reds from our inception. Dos Padres Vineyard was planted with this in mind. Compared to our Estate vineyard, this site is higher in elevation and avoids the cold air draining throughout the valley. With more airflow and higher temperatures, this site gives us incredibly complex and rich reds. With origins in Southwestern France in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, clone 471 (closely related to Clone 470, which we also grow) suits our valley because of its tendency to produce loose clusters which are less rot prone than many other Syrah clones. This is a dark, tannic, age-worthy Syrah. Give this wine ample air before enjoying it young, or lay it down for several years to bring out its full potential.
