Our unique climate is ideal for Syrah, lending to thick pigmented skins and elegant acidity. The grape also gets personality from our calcareous shale soil. Remnants of sea creatures give further definition to its flavor profile, adding minerality and a sense-of-place. Sustainable vineyard practices and low yields are keys to expressing the grape’s full potential. A dense, yet supple flavor is the result of the confluence of nature and mans intervention.

Vintage Notes
2012

Rebounding from the cool harvest of the previous year, 2012 was a classic Paso summer, which promoted vigorous growth. Judicious “green harvesting” thinned the crop to optimum yields. Fruit was picked in early to mid September, destemmed and fermented with native yeast in open-top vats with twice daily punch-downs. The wine matured in puncheon sized French oak barrels for 20 months.
