96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2013 Syrah Om spent just under two years in neutral barrels before being bottled. Deep ruby/purple-colored, with rocking notes of smoked black fruits, black olives, pepper meat, and bacon fat, this sensational wine is locked and loaded on the palate, with beautiful purity of fruit, sweet tannins, and a blockbuster finish. It's a character-filled, smoking good wine. I only wish SAMsARA would make more Syrah!

Production notes
  • Grapes were hand-harvested
  • 100% whole cluster fermentation
  • Like always, we relied on the native yeast that the grapes carried from the vineyards to complete the fermentation
  • We hand punched each fermentor twice a day to enhance the extraction of colors, tannins and flavors
  • After primary fermentation was complete we extended maceration for up to 30-35 days to further extract color, tannins and flavor
  • Pressed with ultra-gentle stainless steel basket press in an 8-hour cycle
  • Aged in neutral oak for 22 months prior to bottling, no fining or filtering with two rackings before bottling.and then another 2 years in bottle prior to releasing.
