Syrah for this wine was grown on a steep hillside above the fog line. The upper sections roast in sun and heat while further down pockets of cool air and shade slow down ripening. The result is a balanced blend of bold, New World richness and Old World elegance. Violets and blueberry on the nose blend beautifully with flavors of blackberry, licorice, and pepper. In keeping with our signature style this wine is extraordinary now and will continue to improve with age.
