Comments from Keith Pilgrim on my Syrah Review

Got a cool email today from Keith Pilgrim – winemaker/owner of Terra Blanca regarding my review on his 2002 Syrah and thought you’d like to see some additional notes on that good bottle of wine:

“……Another difference for Terra Blanca Syrahs are the clones of Syrah we have planted.  We grow the Washington State clone (Phelps Clone) but also sourced two northern Rhone clones that are only planted at our estate vineyard.  The Syrah you reviewed is a blend of the 3 clones of Syrah we grow and is co-fermented with a small amount of Viognier.  I also make two other Syrahs, a Reserve Syrah called Block 8 that is made from our Cote Rote sourced clone of Syrah and a second blend that has yet to be released…..”
