Benevolent Neglect - Syrah 2015

Benevolent Neglect - Syrah 2015


About the Wine

A classic cool climate Syrah from one of the most well regarded Syrah vineyards in Sonoma, Las Madres. The wine is fermented with 40% whole cluster and sees a very small amount of new Hungarian oak.

What Benevolent Neglect Say

The wine opens with elegant aromas of violets before the bright and showy blueberry aromas start to stand at attention followed by flavors of raspberry tart, and the palate showcases a perfect balance between acidity and silky tannins. 

What We Say

Matt and Ben have landed something of a coup to secure the backing the Las Madres growers.  Working with some of the best Syrah fruit in all of California, these two East Coast transplants are making some seriously good wine.  Brighter than it's traditional French counterparts with violet and lavender yet putting an altogether more refined offering than most would expect from California.  A seriously good wine.


About the Producers

benevolent neglect is the creation of two East Coast transplants who moved west with the ambition of one day making great wine. Our philosophy is simple – find the best quality fruit we can get our hands on, and then do as little as possible to it.  Our search for the best grapes came to fruition when we met John Painter and Jean Gadiot, who have owned Las Madres vineyard since its inception. John and Jean converted overgrown pasture land into a beautiful VSP trellised, cool-climate Syrah vineyard with two distinct blocks. We are honored that they have allowed us to give our wine a Vineyard designate and proud to say that our wine is made with as little interference as possible.
