Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of dark plum with overtones of vanilla and blueberry, with a palate of rich layered plum and blueberry flavors, lush mouthfeel and long fruit finish.
Vineyard Notes
This wine is a blend of the best aspects of all five clones of Syrah grown at our estate. Our hillside benchland blocks of 877, 174 and Estrella River clones (75%) add layers of lush fruit flavor and full roundness, our steeply-terraced block of clone 1 (20%) adds tremendous structure and backbone, and our mountaintop block of clone 470 (5%) adds its intensely concentrated color and complex structure.
Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this Syrah with savory cheeses and charcuterie, a roasted lamb, and grilled barbeque meat or mushrooms.
