Syrah is a fantastic grape to work with in the cellar. The deep red-purple color explodes and fascinates each time it is poured into a glass. Its origins stem from the Rhône Valley.
Sonoma Coast vineyards have a combination of warm days, foggy mornings and cool evenings, creating a deep concentration of fresh blueberry fruit, dark color and supple tannin.
Light crushing preserves the fruit and limits harsh tannins, then pressed from the skins and aged for 12 months on a dark toasted French oak (40% new), which provides a wonderful deep and rich butterscotch characteristic.
