Jada Vineyard & WineryJersey Girl Syrah

A love letter from Jack Messina to his wife, Robin, who was born in Neptune, New Jersey, this wine is the clearest expression of the terroir and Syrah at Jada. Our “Jersey Girl” is made in a Cote-Rotie style to balance the dark fruit, spice, and meatiness of our 383 clone which is the backbone of this wine with the bright, lively expression of fruit and perfume come from the Estrella clone Syrah and Viognier that also make up this wine. Soil notes: Dark, Brown Clay Loam. Limestone boulders in top horizons, and shale layer at 63"- 69". Soil pH: 8.3 • Clonal/Rootstock Selections: Syrah - Estrella/5C, 383/420A Graciano - 571/1103P Viognier - 642/420A "The 2018 Syrah Jersey Girl checks in as 94% Syrah, 5% Viognier, and 1% Graciano that spent 16 months in 45% new French oak. Classic blackberry fruit as well as notes of pepper, violets, candied orange, and bacon fat all emerge from this beauty, which is medium to full-bodied and has a flawlessly balanced, elegant texture, no hard edges, and a great finish. It's a beautiful, classic Paso Robles Syrah that does everything right." - JEB DUNNUCK, Sept 2020
