Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Casa Vineyard Syrah is crafted from 16 year old vines at 2200 ft elevation in the Santa Cruz Mountains. These mountain top vines are dry farmed on very volcanic rocky soils. Fermented 100% whole cluster, with native yeasts, and aged for 16 months.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Syrah Casa Vineyard, made with 100% whole cluster, has a medium ruby-purple color and a nose of cassis, olives, white pepper, powdered sugar and touches of mint chocolate and smoked meats. The palate is medium-bodied, concentrated but light on its feet, with a finely grained frame, seamlessly woven freshness and a long, perfumed finish.

A rugged and topographically diverse cool-climate appellation with a rich history, the Santa Cruz Mountains AVA stretches from Half Moon Bay, just south of San Francisco, to the northern border of Monterey County. Elevations range from 800 feet to upwards of 3,000 and microclimates vary substantially depending on which side of the mountains the vineyards lie; cool ocean winds and fog play an important role here. This can be a challenging region in which to grow grapes, but it is well worth the effort. Santa Cruz Mountains wines are noted for balanced acidity levels, often showing great aging potential. Wine has been made here since the 1800s, most notably from the legendary Ridge Vineyards, whose Monte Bello vineyard garners international admiration.

Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are the stars of this region, while Merlot and Zinfandel also perform quite well. Organic and sustainable vineyard practices are becoming increasingly common.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
