Deep and brooding, the finished wine is jet black, an opaqueness hinting at its dense core of black fruits, crushed black berries and plum sauce dusted with cracked pepper, chocolate shavings and developing hints of meat glaze. Great ageing potential here, drinkable now for its pure primary fruit flavors, yet will reward patience, enjoy through 2026.

Syrah, the noble grape of the northern Rhone, is well adapted to the steep, sun-exposed hillsides of our coastal ranges. Within the 50 ridge-top acres of Anna’s Vineyard, the 5 Syrah blocks lie on a precarious southwest facing slope. Poor soils, the continuing drought and a warm Indian summer all contributed to additional vineyard stress and compact clusters of highly pigmented grapes.
