ASCENT Syrah 

Highest Rated Syrah in California

Each year Bill Easton, an original Rhône Ranger, crafts his top Syrah named ASCENT from several Sierra Foothills vineyard sites ranging up to 3,000 feet in elevation.  All of the grapes are grown in granite and volcanic-based soils. Only 8 barrels are produced and spend 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels before bottle ageing. This is a deeply concentrated wine with dense layers of aromatic complexity.  In the mouth, you'll find riotous smoky wood tones, exotic spices, minerality and fine tannins. This wine has great structure and ageing potential.
 
In 2020, the 2016 vintage was awarded 100 points by The Wine Enthusiast and is #2 on their Top 100 List for 2020. The 2016 TERRE ROUGE Syrah, ASCENT was pre-released in February of 2020 and a small quantity was re-released in the Fall of 2020. As of January 1st, 2021 this wine has gone back to our cellar for further élevage. This is a top scoring wine every year! Since its first release in 1999, the ASCENT has garnered praise and high scores in all national publications.
