Bos Wine 2013 Phoenix Ranch Syrah
Phoenix Ranch is in the southeastern part of Napa Valley and is located such that it enjoys a significant San Francisco Bay climate. The ranch is often blanketed with bay area fog until mid morning, when like clockwork, it burns off and gives way to the heat of the afternoon sun, allowing just enough time to gently heat and ripen the fruit. In the evening, the fog rolls back in and the vineyard cools down again. This regular cooling and heating cycle helps retain the natural acidity in the fruit and allows for a longer, more even ripening of the fruit.
