2008 Petite Syrah Russian River (Beholden) Session 001 3L

While Petite is sometimes called "Poor Man's Cab," the Beholden can stand up to any well-built Bordeaux.  Big black fruits, a little earthiness and silky tannins will help you understand why there's a whole society dedicated to this grape.

Beholden's winemaker,"Billy," is the head winemaker at one of the most storied wineries in America. Born in Central Valley wine country, Billy went after winemaking at an early age. After getting a degree in enology, Billy worked his way up from cellar rat to head winemaker. Unfortunately, Billy’s winery was purchased by one of the conglomerates, to which he is now beholden for his livelihood.

Once he became part of the conglomerate, he felt pressure to sell his own personal winery. While his hand was forced into selling virtually all of his own wines into boring blends, he couldn’t bring himself to see the Beholden de-souled. Instead, he turned to the20 to save it. Beholden is Billy’s dream, enjoy it responsibly.  

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Black fruits (boysenberry & blackberry), tobacco & silky tannins
Vineyard Notes
Billy found Samantha's Vineyard on the eastern edge of the Russian RIver Valley through word of mouth. A 20 year old family owned vineyard, Samantha's grows Pinot, Syrah and Petite in the same vineyard (no minor feat).
Production Notes
Rockpile yeast was used to inoculate the fermentation. Malolactic fermentation taken to completion. 30 day extended maceration post-fermentation to maximize extraction.
Production
5 barrels

Some time ago, I needed to buy a car for my business but I didn't have enough cash and couldn't order something. Thank heaven my mother suggested to try to get the loans at trustworthy bank. Thus, I acted so and was happy with my term loan.
