Winemaker's Notes:

Echelon is known best for its Syrah, which imparts that distinct Rhone spiciness and peppery perfume with just the right amount of candied orange peel. The mouth bursts with sweet, ripe strawberry fruit as well as jammy plum traits offset by lively black pepper and cinnamon. This medium-bodied wine displays a dense color and soft, rounded mouthfeel.

About Echelon Vineyards:

Combining the best fruit from friends’ and neighbors’ vineyards, Echelon produces serious wines for everyday drinking. To obtain this exceptional fruit, Echelon pioneered the development of long-term contracts with growers in emerging regions, including areas within California’s Central Coast and the Clarksburg appellation’s Esperanza Vineyard. Echelon’s winery is located in San Miguel, in the heart of the Central Coast, near many of its vineyard sources. This state-of-the-art facility enables Echelon to take advantage of the latest technology throughout the winemaking process.

Echelon’s superb grapes and gentle winemaking result in fresh, fruit-forward wines. Beautifully balanced and pleasingly complex, these impressive premium wines are easy on the palate and the budget.
