Sulphited and topped

We were unsure of when we last sulphited, so we decided to go with +35 ppm. We will have it tested after we rack the 2013.

  • 60 gallon barrel: +35 ppm = 138 ml of 10% SO2 soln


Tasting notes: Nice nose. I got of lot of cherry. Still has was we call a “young” taste. Feels like it has not yet “turned the corner”. Good tannins.

We also tasted the ’12 LH Syrah. In the past they have seemed more different. This time they seemed more similar, in that they both need more time in barrel. We were wondering if we are getting enough oak, since out barrels are more used than they were for the 2011.
