Lying 750 feet above the Russian River, Montemaggiore Vineyards are steeply terraced on the western edge of the Dry Creek Valley. The steep mountainside is responsible for naturally low-yielding vines and the concentrated flavors in our Syrah. The proximity to the Pacific Ocean insures a steady stream of cool fog on most summer nights which makes for a perfect long slow ripening and good acid balance.
Aged for 22 months in 20% new French oak barrels
