Star Angel “Aurelio´s selection” 2009

This gorgeous Syrah based wine has a beautiful dark red / purple color. The upfront nose is fruity and spicy with notes of blueberries and black currant and hints of bacon and black pepper. A very well integrated French oak blends perfectly with the smoky and meaty traditional flavours from hot climate Syrah.
Dense, rich and chewy on the palate; with a light and smooth finish that adds elegance and complexity. Many layers make this wine intriguing and unique. A great representation of the best Paso Robles Syrah.

Harvest notes
With very low yields thanks to a mixture of drought and some early frost damage, the 2009 vintage was a late season for Paso Robles.The weather during spring set was great, but the clusters and berry size that resulted were just small increasing both concentration and flavours. It was definitely a unique year for wine grapes growing, but the quality of the wine promises to be outstanding.

Winemaking notes
After harvesting, the grapes were cold macerated for 7 days and were subjected to 10 days of fermentation process at 83º- 85º F (28 º - 30º C). The finished dry wine went through a skin post fermentation maceration for 10 – 15 days. 70 % of the wine was aged in new French oak barrels.
