Winemaker's Notes

Nose: Focused boysenberry, blue fruits, violets, fennel, smoked game, sweet oak

Blend: 94% syrah, 6% viognier

Critical Acclaim

"There is a sense of refinement and pure precision about this bottling that not only moves it to the head of the class but sets it in a class all its own. Very deep and impeccably structured, it eschews runaway ripeness in favor of layered richness and real nuance, and it begs for comparison with the fine wines of Côte Rôtie rather than its more blustery Californian kin. It is as classy and sophisticated as local Syrah is likely to get, and it is bound to age famously by dint of balance and depth."
