2003 Steinbeck Syrah
The growing season for 2003 began with a cool and wet spring but warmed up mid-summer. A heat spell lasted through the months of May and June, which created some set and bloom problems. The remainder of the harvest season had ideal temperatures with warm days and cool nights. Crop yields were lower with smaller clusters, but this resulted in higher intensity fruit, resulting in premium quality, complex grapes.
