Crafted from a selection of our finest mountain-top and benchland blocks, this wine has richly structured layers of opulent flavor and a Iong, velvety finish.
This MAGNUM COLLECTION wine is made from grapes grown at Michel-Schlumberger estate vineyard in Dry Creek Valley. Our winemaker carefully selected individual barrels of Syrah, and added a small amount of our estate hillside block of Grenache to achieve the optimum expression of flavor for this Syrah.
