    Winemaker's Notes:

    In the nose, an effusive fruit profile of blueberry and Santa Rosa plum merges with white peppery varietal spice, violet-like perfumes and smoky oak. On the palate, the tannin and oak-enlarged fruit take on a roasted, meaty viscosity, and the varietal spice, an anise-like flavor, mingles with dense, stony notes of terroir that winemaker Marco describes as "graphite".

    Critical Acclaim:

    From the first sniff to the finish, this is really a good Syrah. It impresses for its richness and balance, and the way it brings a taste of the earth to the ripe fruit. Grown at 2,600 feet in the Sierra Nevada, it’s concentrated in cassis, licorice, cocoa, pepper and Provençal herb flavors, and is most notable for its harmony and complexity. Absolutely delicious, a first-class Syrah.

    Discovered their Zin last year and the Syrah doesn't disappoint. Spicy but round. A great wine from a nice little known vineyard

    Decent wine but definitely overrated, should be about 88. Nicely priced.
