91 Pts. The Wine Enthusiast

This wine is made from three of our higher elevation Syrah sites. We thought that they expressed the racy aromatics of the Syrah grape that reminded us of Côte Rotie. We are bottling these three sites together as a special treat for those that appreciate the finesse that Syrah can achieve.

High, cool vineyard sites mature at lower sugar levels producing a wine with a lot of finesse. This wine expresses the wonderful meaty, white pepper nuances of Syrah, while still retaining some of the smoky, spicy qualities of the grape. Our artisan cellar techniques include fermentation in small lots, special yeast strains, manual-punch downs, gentle transfers and pressing, and barrel aging for 20 months in French oak (33% new).
