Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) The wine was fermented in open top tanks and received manual punch-downs. This enabled good extraction and structure development with pleasant tannins. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to French oak barrels. The 12% new oak gives the wine subtle spice and vanilla characters without overpowering the elegant fruit profile.

Expert Reviews
  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    50% Syrah; 50% Grenache. Clearly showing its Grenache side in aromas of ripe strawberries with hints of blackberry, this one picks up an extra note of richness from a light but evident milk chocolate scent. The wine is fairly full on the palate and has an open and somewhat fleshy feel leading to ripe, rounded flavors and a tasty, slightly hot finish.
