Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Bone Rock is maybe the most structured version yet, Ifind myself being sucked into it while tasting, like it's a blackhole, brooding is a fitting descriptor. Because of it's density,tannin, and acidity, it really needs a few years to unfold, so bepatient please!

Blend: 83% Syrah, 13% Mourvèdre, 4% Grenache

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Bone Rock comes across as quite delicate and perfumed in its expressive bouquet. Hints of smoke, mint and tar add complexity to the dark, black fruit in this beautifully balanced wine. I find a bit more complexity and nuance in the 2008 than in the 2009. I especially like the aromatic lift and freshness here. The 2008 Bone Rock is 83% Syrah (75% whole clusters), 13% Mourvedre and 4% Grenache. The wine spent 30 months in French oak and was bottled in January 2011.
WS 95
Wine Spectator
Tight and muscular, with dense, chewy tar, blackberry, mineral, cedar, sage and roasted herb flavors. Full-blown and intense, yet for all its size and stature, this is very compelling and complete, sure to benefit from cellaring. Syrah (83 percent) with Mourvèdre and Grenache. Drink now through 2024. 550 cases made.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
