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.
