Enfield Wine Syrah Haynes Vineyard Napa Valley 2013
Story

The “bowl” of Coombsville, Napa’s long under-rated and newest AVA, is frequently the coolest part of the region and proof that Napa can produce wines of elegance as well as power. The Haynes vineyard is a little piece of Napa winemaking history, home to some of the oldest Chardonnay vines (possibly the oldest) in Napa County, originally planted in 1966, and has been farmed continuously by Ferndando Delgado since 1971. It is located on a particularly concentrated pocket of alluvial gravel and cobblestones, with a thick layer of volcanic ash from Mt. George running through the subsoil making it one of Coombsville’s most noble sites. Enfield’s little block was replanted to Syrah in 1998 and lies in one of the rockiest sections of the vineyard.
