A luscious mountain Syrah with velvety flavors of dark chocolate truffles, violets and rich blackberry rounded out with delicate oak nuances and leaving you with a delightful mouth feel and a lasting finish of vanilla bean gelato..

Production Notes

100% Syrah from a 2,800 foot vineyard in the Sierra Foothills.

Winemaker Notes

My mentor once told me "Doug,, as a winemaker you are given cocoa, and your chore is to make chocolate." Winddance Vineyard which sits at 2,800 feet in the Sierra Foothills offers amazing "cocoa" for one to make "chocolate". It as become a favorite vineyard of mine to source Syrah.

Cooperage Notes

Aged for 30 months in 1 and 2 year old French oak barrels
