Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Our 2008 is perhaps the most varietally intense Syrah we have ever produced. It is packed with all of the non-fruit aromas that make this grape so intriguing and make me love it so much. Be prepared for lavender honey on a sweet baguette, a freshly mown field, a wheel of sheep’s milk cheese and a bushel of rocks, leather and pepper. It’s as evocative as it is delicious.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) Ripe berry, coffee, tar, and sweet herbs climb out of the glass on first pour. The mouth is explosive with similar flavors and the structure pushes to all corners of the palate.

    (From 2008 Vintage) Big, ripe and grapey, yet polished andelegant, delivering tiers of full-bodiedblackberry and wild berry avors up front.Yet this is a graceful wine, pushing out richberry character, with mocha and savoryherb notes. Drink now through 2018
