The 2019 was the fifth year of our ongoing drought, but paradoxically it was not a particularly warm growing season with no really severe heat spikes. The yields were extremely low with good fruit quality. The grapes were able to be harvested at relatively low sugar levels and produced wines with lower than average alcohol levels and excellent balance between fruit, acidity and tannin. On our Three Pines Syrah we always focus on the texture -- the "mouthfeel" -- and the fine balance between power and elegance. it is not an "in your face" style: it shows pretty floral notes with slight pepperiness and the palate is smooth and polished with a long elegant finish -- what one critic described as "having the texture of crushed violets".
