Poor Ranch Syrah 2022 Edaphos - Ernest Vineyards
$42.00   750mL
Poor Ranch sits above Hopland on the western slope of the Mayacamas Mountain Range. The Poor family has been stewards of this land since the 1800’s. They farm without Irriagtion and are certified organic by CCOF. The Syrah comes from the east side of a block that was planted nearly 30 years ago. The rough hewn Redvine soil series retains just enough water to keep the plants in production while allowing for concentrated flavors.

The 2022 Poor Ranch Syrah exhibits a profound and enchanting shade of dark purple, enriched by crimson and blueish hues that intermingle gracefully. The aromas unfold, generously weaving together a lavish array of succulent blackberry, ripe black plum, and the alluring essence of cassis, each note contributing to the wine's multi-layered aromatic profile. Delicate yet striking mineral-driven elements are unveiled reminiscent of pencil lead, and crushed gravel. Medium tannins extend a velvety texture on the palate, while the influence of toasty nuances from seasoned barrels introduces intricate dimensions. This 22 Poor Ranch Syrah stands as a testament to the elegance and the untapped potential of the varietal from this mountain site.
