Winemaker's Notes

This wine is 84% Syrah, 7% Mondeuse, 5% Grenache, 3% Mourvèdre and 1% Counoise. It is 49% from Santa Barbara County, 43% from Paso Robles and 89% from the Arroyo Grande Valley. It is a blend of twelve different vineyards in the Central Coast with French Camp (Paso Robles) and Bien Nacido (Santa Maria) the two largest components.

2001 was an outstanding vintage, with almost perfect weather. The warmer Paso Robles fruit gives gobs of round, soft berry fruit. The cooler Santa Barbara and Arroyo Grande components add spice, acidity and depth as well as firm tannic structure.
