Located in the Chalone appellation the vines are planted on limestone and granite. This rustic Syrah has blueberry and lavender on the nose and a plush tart palate.

Vintage Notes: 

The 2016 growing season had an early start partly due to winter and spring rains, which were a welcome reprieve to the drought conditions of 2012-2015. Furthermore, the warm and dry summer also contributed to the early start to harvest. These factors came together to produce a higher yield of fruit.

Vineyard Notes: 

Located in the Chalone appellation and a short distance from the Pinnacles National Monument, this vineyard is planted in granite and limestone, and produces a wine that truly evokes its provenance.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas: Blueberry reduction, star anise, clove

Palate: Medium plus weight on the palate. Blackberry, peppercorn, California Bay leaf, graphite
