Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2010 Estate Syrah must be the most accessible Syrah we've yet produced. We utilized very few stems in the 2010 fermentations and less new oak in the elevage. Asa result the finished wines are succulent with brilliant aromatics and silky tannins. Although this wine will be enjoyable upon release, I am confident it will continue to give pleasure for 10+ years.

We are constantly improving our vineyards according to the latest information available about viticultural techniques, technology, vine material and our specific terroir. Read less
