Holiday Collector's Series

Limited Edition - 2020 Estate Syrah

This year we are sharing a little something extra from our holiday traditions. When the World’s Fair was held in St. Louis in 1904, my grandfather, August Busch Sr., discovered an incredible artist named Oscar Berninghaus and commissioned him to create pieces for our family’s personal collection. One of his paintings has always been my favorite, as it reminds me of the magic of the holidays and our cherished tradition of horse-drawn carriage rides through freshly fallen snow.

The Estate Syrah is made entirely from fruit grown on our estate vineyard, tucked into the slopes of Folded Hills. The site is meticulously farmed by grower Ruben Solorzano. It is our third Reserve Syrah entirely from Folded Hills vineyard and showcases Nojoqui, the southernmost block of Syrah.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Entices with aromatics of tapenade and blackberry, alongside boysenberry, fresh black pepper, and mocha. This wine is deep and powerful yet vibrant, with bright acidity and energy, the epitome of a cool climate Syrah.
Production Notes
Two fermentations, one 37.5% whole cluster, one 100% de-stemmed
Winemaker Notes
Two fermentation lots were picked and fermented separately. Of these two, one had 37.5% Whole cluster while the other was 100% destemmed. The wine was aged for 10 months in 23% new French oak, to enhance texture and depth, without overwhelming the subtle flavor of the site. The expression is delicate from vine to bottle and transports you to the mineral earth and unique climate of Folded Hills. We highly recommend decanting this wine for optimal expression.
