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 was #2 on their Top 100 List for 2020. The 2016 TERRE ROUGE Syrah, ASCENT was pre-released iin 2020 to our mailing list.
In 2022, the 2018 vintage also received 100 Points from The Wine Enthusiast. This wine will be released in the future.
