Marketing Description:

I don’t think I’ve ever found a more dramatic match of site to grape variety in California over the last 22 vintages than Syrah at Bassetti Vineyard. That doesn’t mean I’m right, but it doesn’t mean I’m wrong either. It’s odd that, of the six years I made wine from this fruit, only in the odd-numbered years (’01, ’03, and ’05) did I bottle a Bassetti Vineyard Syrah. (I won’t go into the even years here: each is a book unto itself. Maybe in another lifetime.) All three of these odd vintages made very dramatic, perhaps profound wine. To choose the best of the three right now feels easy; it’s the ’05. I’m not sure I could make a better wine from any vineyard on this Earth, in any year, going forward or back, than the ’05 Bassetti Syrah.
