Winemaker's Notes:

2010 brought out more of Occidental's savory side with aromatics of maple syrup, pecan, and sassafras. Brighter on the palate this vintage, with a juicy mouthfeel balanced by acidity and resolved firm tannins.

About Failla:

While the history of Failla (pronounced FAY-la) is short it is not without its complexities. Founded as Failla Jordan in 1998, it took its name from the husband-and-wife team of winemaker Ehren Jordan and fellow debtor Anne-Marie Failla. That year we planted our Estate vineyard on the Sonoma Coast and began buying fruit for our first releases, the very Rhône-style '98 Alban Vineyard Viognier and '98 Que Syrah Syrah.
