This is one of our special single-vineyard Syrah bottlings. Only 100 cases were bottled and released first to our club members. We have a small amount left.
The Monarch MIne Vineyard, at 2500' elevation above Auburn, is one of our very special vineyard sites. Our Sauvignon Blanc, Roussanne, Cabernet Franc and Barbera all come from this old mine site.
This Syrah has unique savory character coming from the four clones of Syrah planted here - 877,174, Noir & 99.The fermentation took place with 50% whole cluster fruit mixed with de-stemmed and lightly crushed fruit, and hand punch-downs.
