"This has a grand array of exotic flinty, meaty, smoky and spicy aromas. The powerful flavors taste a bit restrained at first sip, then unfold and seem to expand on the palate. Pure and brilliant layers of ripe blackberry, smoked herbs and darkest chocolate ride on an elegant texture of fine tannins and supportive acidity."Jim Gordon

For 10 years, this Syrah has been the highest rated Syrah in the Sierra Foothills. This is Bill Easton’s “winemaker cuvee” where he selects just 8 barrels of his finest Syrah and ages the wine for 23 months in 100% new François Frères French oak barrels.

All of the grapes are grown in selected Syrah sites scattered throughout the Sierra Nevada in granite and volcanic-based soils. This is a deeply concentrated wine with dense layers of aromatic complexity. In the mouth you’ll find thick concentrated and riotous smoky wood tones, exotic spices, minerality and fine tannins. This wine has great structure and aging potential. Limited. 200 Cases
