This Syrah is cool. It is also organic, very complex, and a labor of love.
The DTR Ranch is our home vineyard. It is our coolest Syrah site and is located on the steep slopes of the Fiddletown appellation. Most of these vines are grown without rootstock. We farm these slate, schist, and quartz laden soils in a holistic and sustainable manner using just organic compost to amend the soil, owls to keep the rodents in check, in-row cultivation, organic sulfur as a fungicide, and lots of hand labor. This wine is made in a traditional artisan manner and is a true reflection of the place the vines live and thrive in.
