Winemaker's Notes

Our California coastal Syrah is a ripe, succulent and decadent wine. Grapes from Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey and Paso Robles vineyards provide rich varietal character for this juicy and exotic wine.

Grapes were brought into the winery, cold soaked and fermented in small tanks similar to those used for pinot noir. Gentle handling and pressing of the grapes preserved fresh fruit aromas and flavors. Oak aging in both French and American barrels for approximately eight months imparted subtle allspice, cinnamon and caramel notes.

Blueberry pie with nuances of chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, cedar, and anise all contribute to a wine of depth and complexity with supple tannins and a long fruit finish.
