2013 Art + Science Syrah Stella Maris Vineyard Appelgate Valley AVA 100% whole cluster Aged 18 mos in once used oak barrel unfined & unfiltered 72 cases produced We recently tried this alongside an Alain Graillot Crozes-Hermitage and were astounded to find this was on the same level. Truly excellent. Add the gorgeous bottle art and this one is a winner. winery: Stella Maris Vineyard is at 1200′ elevation on a hillside in southern Oregon. The fruit is harvested from a portion of the vineyard inherent of an old riverbed bottom with alluvial soils. The extremely stressed conditions of the site force the vines to work hard to ripen the fruit, thus creating highly concentrated grapes.
