2020 Syrah

Raspberry, pomegranate, elderberry, charcuterie, white pepper, freshly grated nutmeg, garrigue and bay are just a few of the many vibrant flavors that unfold in waves as the wine evolves in its glass. A rich, voluptuous texture adheres to the tongue with ripe tannins emerging on the balanced graceful finish.

We have a perfect site for growing syrah grapes here at the western tip of our estate, where shy-yielding vines scrape out an existence in the rocky soils of a steep, north-facing slope, bathed in low-angle sunlight and cool afternoon breezes. The longer the hangtime between veraison (when the grapes change color in August) and harvest, the more syrah becomes complex and this is achieved on north-facing blocks that do not ripen too quickly.
