2015 Estate Syrah X BlockHand harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Then aged for 18 months in French oak; 25% new. This wine was bottled unfiltered.
Dark aromatics of espresso, meat, and sage draw you in, but it’s the rich entry on the peppery and dense palate that’s a showcase of this vineyard. They complement the tightly wound but very long finish.
Vineyard Sites700 ft. elevation. Vines face directly south 16 miles from the Pacific Ocean.
Vine AgeGrafted in 1987
