Winemaker Notes

On the nose, the Syrah offers aromatics of sweet blackberries, tarragon and plum. The balanced palate is elegant and generous, with concentrated dark fruit and silky tannins alongside flavors of boysenberry, dark chocolate and dusty hot rocks. Creamy, French oak notes linger on the persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 89
Wine Spectator
Generous and easy drinking, with rich, complex dark berry flavors that are smooth-textured, deep and persistent, losing a little traction on the finish, ending with a minerally edge. Drink now through 2017. 800 cases made.
WE 88
Wine Enthusiast
This generous Syrah is reminiscent of a nice, rich Provençal wine. It’s soft and spicy and fruity, with a good grip of tannin. The black raspberry, mulberry and cherry flavors are dusted with cinnamon and clove, and you’ll find a coating of sweet, smoky oak. The vineyard is on Atlas Peak.

Stickybeak, California

Ever been curious enough to stick your nose over someone’s fence to see what’s going on? Or peer through a crack in their front gate, just to get a better look? Stickybeak has! Some people might say they're busybodies or nosey neighbors although they prefer the Australian term ‘stickybeak.’ And being Napa-based wine industry folk, it’s hard to not be curious about the stunning vineyards and regions that surround them. In fact, as inquisitive vintners, it seemed only natural that they'd have a bit of a stickybeak in their own backyard to see what they could find.

After setting up shop in Napa some 15 years ago and importing benchmark Australian wine estates, natural curiosity led them all over the state of California to taste, sip, spit and drink the best the state has to offer, all the while wondering how they could make their mark in the country they now call home.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
