Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes
The final blend is a result of many trials and seeks to achieve parity with previous grape compositions, ultimately a savory concoction, fruit at the core with earth, mineral and a sense of meaty complexity. Expressive aromas of blackberries and a subtle roasted meat, herbs-de-Provence quality are restated in the supple textured, well integrated flavors of dark berries, bouillon and smoked herb-olive paste. Drink now through 2020.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Notes
A dedicated collection of Rhône grape varieties, Anna’s mountainous 48 acres are divided between six red varieties, planted between 2001 and 2004 along a steep south facing ridge, and 4 lower elevation white varieties planted in 2007. Red varieties benefit from ideal sun exposure and exhibit the nuanced flavors of their elevated mountain site in Paso Robles' Adelaida District. At between 1,595 and 1,935 feet in elevation, the red varieties lie on an extreme 30 degree slope rooted in devigorating calcareous shale sub soils. At 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the afternoon marine air flow accentuates a dramatic 40-50 degree diurnal temperature cool down. The white varieties lie at the lowest point of the vineyard, 1,595 feet, which promotes a pooling of the cool air. All vines, on drip, are planted on lime tolerant rootstock using a vertical shoot training system. Vine spacing is 4 feet between vines and 10 feet between rows, 1,089 vines/acre. Yields are maintained at 2 tons/acre. Vines are ENTAV certified, the 15 acres of Syrah being a diverse selection, divided into 5 vineyard blocks.

Vintage Notes

Vintage Notes
2014

All varieties are handled separately, hand sorted, de-stemmed, allowed a brief cold soak and fermented in small lot-sized vats with indigenous yeast, gently worked with twice daily punch downs and pump-overs. The wines matured for 16 months in a mix of different sized French oak barrels, about 40% new. The final blend is a result of many trials and seeks to achieve parity with previous grape compositions, ultimately a savory concoction, fruit at the core with earth, mineral and a sense of meaty complexity. Expressive aromas of blackberries and a subtle roasted meat, herbs-de-Provence quality are restated in the supple textured, well integrated flavors of dark berries, bouillon and smoked herb-olive paste. Drink now through 2020.
