John Lockwood and Amy Sees started Enfield Wine Co. as a side project in 2010 when John was working full time at Failla Wines in Napa. Since then, their production has grown from a few hundred cases to more than 2,400 with their wines receiving positive attention from critics. They plumb more obscure terroirs, like Wild Horse Valley, and source unexpected varieties planted in oddball sites, like Cabernet Sauvignon from Waterhorse Ridge on the extreme Sonoma Coast.
Their 2017 Syrah is sourced from the Haynes Vineyard is Napa's mildest growing region, the Coombsville AVA. Climb an old oak tree here and you have a direct line of sight across San Pablo Bay to Mt. Tamalpais on the other side. On cool mornings the marine level sinks down into the Coombsville Bowl and doesn’t break up until the afternoon, protecting this area from extreme temps during the growing season. The vines are planted in deep, alluvial,cobblestone soil ideal for root penetration. Below the topsoil a layer of powdery, white volcanic ash stores tiny amounts of moisture allowing the fruit to maintain tremendous acidity and develop an elegant and refined tannin structure. Haynes is managed by Fernando Delgado, who has farmed and lived on the property continuously since 1971. Few farmers anywhere have more experience with one plot of land than Ferndando has with Haynes, a vineyard that produces classic, age-worthy wines of fruit and minerality.
