Tasting notes

Inky black and massively concentrated black fruit, black pepper, tar and roses complete the brilliant aromas of this classic California Syrah. A bit more of a bruiser than the 2013, this 2014 is the perfect foil for a fatty piece of lamb or your favorite Cowboy Steak fresh off of an iron skillet. The tannins are velvety and the fruit intense, which reminds us mostly of the 2004 version of this wine, but with a lower abv.

Production

Vintage Notes

This is our 14th vintage of Syrah from this singular site in the Russian River Valley. Bright orange Haire clay soils give this wine the spice, depth and concentration that you expect from this site. These vines have balanced themselves out and hardly demand any input in regards to crop load, whereas when these vines were young, they required a lot of thinning.

Farmed Organically 
100% Native Yeasts and Bacteria

Aged in neutral French Oak Barrels for 11 months
