Taking its cue from the clandestine Bordeaux blends of yesteryear, this marriage of full flavored syrah with its cool climate cabernet neighbor to the north, demonstrates the synergies of the two varieties. Adelaida’s Viking Vineyard produced a similar condition, a crisp edged, more angular cabernet, the result of a cool summer, combined with a voluptuous syrah from a south facing, upper block that historically ripens earlier.

Made separately, these two wines were aged for a good year and a half in new and neutral oak barrels, respectively. The syrah, without the influence of new oak, preserved its pure, exuberant fruity personality and brings to the blend a broad mouth feel which adds vitality and density to the edgier fruit acidity of the mountain influenced cabernet.
