2019 KC Labs Syrah
About this wine
KC Labs is the newest addition to our portfolio. When we have an opportunity that we can’t pass up we always take it. Sometimes that opportunity will only be a single vintage wine, sometimes more. KC Labs is our playground. We experiment with grapes, styles, fermentation, aging and much more. Thinking outside the box makes us better producers. The consumer is the lucky beneficiary of our experimentation. We always guarantee that the KC Labs wines will receive the same amount of love as our other projects and luckily for you the price will be a little lower! Syrah is obviously a cornerstone of Kivelstadt Cellars portfolio. We made our name based on our Syrah produced from the Kivelstadt Estate Vineyard, which is refined and elegant. The KC Labs Syrah on the other hand is the fun teenager who one day might develop that refinement. It’s energetic, fun and always ready to start the party!
