Field Book Spring Creek Estate Red Wine

2019

Field Book Syrah 2019

The name Field Book reflects the extensive notes recorded as we continue to seek interesting vineyard sites from which to produce compelling wines that express their unique terroirs. In 2016 we didn’t have to search further than next door, when our neighbor asked us to farm their Spring Creek Vineyard. We jumped at the opportunity and entered into a long-term lease! This historic vineyard, first planted in the 1880s, borders the southern edge of our estate and gives us the opportunity to explore farming and winemaking with heritage California varietals like Petite Sirah, Carignan, Alicante Bouschet, Napa Gamay and Mourvedre, as well as to trial other varieties like Touriga Nacional, Manseng Noir, Tinta Cao, Falanghina and Assyrtiko. The Spring Creek Vineyard thus speaks to both the past and future of winegrowing in Napa Valley as we adapt to the effects of climate change, through what we plant.

This tiny vineyard – only one hectare (2.2 acres) – is composed of benchland bale clay and alluvial soils, and enjoys the same cooling maritime breezes that come through the gap between Spring Mountain and the Mayacamas Range and pass over the Spottswoode Estate Vineyard.

We are excited to present this inaugural vintage of Field Book Spring Creek Estate Red Wine, crafted exclusively for our Top Spott! and Spott On! members. This powerful red wine is intensely flavored and deeply colored. It is a plush and mouth-coating wine with bright acidity and juicy black and red fruit. Produced in extremely limited quantities, only 123 cases of this vintage were bottled.

Winemaker Notes: Savory and powerful, the Spring Creek Estate Red wine evokes notes of blackberry, blueberry, violet, strawberry, and pomegranate that interplay with aromas of toasted coconut and toasted almonds. The tannins are firm yet velvety, and the mouthfeel is plush. This is a fresh and compelling wine with many years of life ahead.
