In 1992, culinary entrepreneur Pat Kuleto assembled five parcels from cattle ranchers to create a 761-acre ranch of wild hillside land on the eastern edge of the Napa Valley. Marrying the eye of a master designer and the heart of a vintner, Pat perceived the vast potential for a world-class vineyard on the mountainous land overlooking Lake Hennessey, Pritchard Hill and the towns of Rutherford and St. Helena. For Pat, the building of his rustically elegant Tuscan-style home, Villa Cucina, and the planting of the surrounding Kuleto Estate vineyards represented the next step in the evolution of a life committed to gracious living and excellence.

Wine Tasting NotesThe focus here is on deep, dark fruit. The three clones of Syrah at Kuleto Estate were planted at 1400 feet on top of a ridge with thin, shaly soil. Syrah can grow like a weed and set huge crops in some sites, but on this windy ridge, the vines are slow to grow, small in stature, and produce low crops with little intervention. Berries and clusters are small for the variety and therefore produce wines of great intensity. There's some smoked meat character, and the tannins are thick and sweet.
