This Syrah is sourced from a small vineyard surrounded by ancient, well-weathered oak trees. The "Quercus Block" is named after the Latin term for oak tree and is comprised of vines that are hand-farmed with meticulous effort.
Bright wild berries and blackberry are complemented with abundant spice. Black pepper, clove, vanilla, coconut and a hint of cedar smoke swirl together in the mouthfeel. The finish is a silky mid-palate with sufficient tannin backbone for aging.
After the wine has aged in 100 percent new oak barrels for 22 months, our winemaking team selects the best barrels to represent the Quercus Block vineyard.
