Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Winemaker's Notes

This cuvee is sourced from terraced vineyards perched on the slopes of Chavanay. The soil is a mix of sand and granite with a very thin top soil. The alcoholic fermentation is done in open top cuves for three weeks under controlled temperatures with regular pigeage and remontage for extraction. The malolactic is done is barrel. Elevage in small barrel for eighteen months before the bottling (unfiltered).

Critical Acclaim

"Piercing mesquite and black tea aromas lead the way, with a dense but silky structure framing the core of lightly mulled boysenberry, blackberry and black currant fruit. A mesquite edge lingers through the fine-grained finish. Very suave. "
92 Points

"Inky ruby. Black and blue fruits on the smoky, intensely perfumed nose and in the mouth. Shows a wild, meaty quality with air, as well as hints of cracked pepper and candied flowers. Closes on a gently tannic note, with very good energy and lingering spiciness."
90 Points

This might be the smoothest Syrah I have ever tasted. Dark and smoky. Beautiful stuff!
