Delicate and structure with a broad, soft palate and light body, this wine intrigues with layers of exotic spice.

Vintage Notes: 

A very cool growing season in 2018 allowed us to leisurely pick grapes over a long period of time. This cool weather allowed us to have many different wines picked at various levels of ripeness and flavor development, while maintaining ideal sugar levels. 

Vineyard Notes: 

Perched on slopes 1,500 feet above the valley floor in the Yorkville Highlands, this Syrah vineyard is located just shy of the southeastern end of Anderson Valley. Cool nighttime temperatures and rocky soils, reminiscent of the northern Rhône Valley, render a truly site-specific wine bearing pronounced aromatics, blackberries and hints of spice.

Wine Profile: 

Aromas of blackberry, cracked pepper and fig. As it opens up, dried herbs and blueberries and cream come into focus. The palate is complex and layered with hints of elderberry syrup, dried fig, leather and bacon fat.
