The wine that started it all! The Black Sheep Finds wine project started in 2005 with the very first vintage of Hocus Pocus Syrah. 2013 is the ninth vintage of Hocus Pocus Syrah. I know I said this last year, but this is my favorite vintage yet! It is again a blend of a cooler vineyard (Watch Hill Vineyard in Los Alamos) and warmer climate vineyard (sustainably farmed Harrison-Clarke Vineyard).
Aged for 12 months in two-adn-three-year-old barrels, balanced alcohol of 14.5%, 1000 cases produced.
“a rock-solid bottle of Syrah, beautifully textured” 88 points, Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, August 2014
