Tasting Notes

Our Syrah Vineyard grows on a beautiful south facing slope. The cooling breezes from our vineyards 2600' elevation, the ample sunlight, and the deep, well drainining volcanic soils allows our Syrah to showcase both floral and savory aromas, including bacon, olive tapenade, blueberry, and violets. Very age worthy, but approachable now, this is an excellent example of fine Syrah.

Vineyard Notes

Rhone grapes have found an excellent home in El Dorado County, and Syrah is no exception. Our Estate Syrah grows on a South-West facing slope on relatively deep, loamy volcanic soil. Our Syrah has the best seat in the house at 2,700’, with commanding views stretching all the way to the Coast Range 100 miles away. Like the great Syrah vineyards of Côte-Rôtie, this location receives a tremendous amount of sunshine, from cool mornings through the warm afternoons.
