WINEMAKER NOTES
The Syrah grapes for this wine were sourced from our Salaal and Hollister vineyards on our Edna Ranch and includes two clones. Clone 99, a late ripening French clone with big berries and sizable clusters and clone 877 which offers an impressive tannin profile. The Petite Sirah and Grenache came from the Poletti vineyard in the rolling foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for 20 months in small French and American oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES
Deep ruby red color with the inviting aromas of black cherry, crème-de-cassis, black currant and earthy notes of cedar and cigar. Opulent flavors of chocolate covered red cherries, anise and blackberry with soft round tannins, a rich mouthfeel and generous finish. This wine would pair well with grilled meats topped with a red wine reduction sauce.
