Winemaker's Notes:

This is a wine that displays more of the spicy, racy and mineral aspects of syrah with a strong savory component and less of that jammy fruit. There is a freshness on the palate that carries through the fi nish. This is certainly the most "Northern Rhone-ish" of any of our Central Coast bott lings. If you're expecting a fruit bomb, you won't fi nd it here!
