Our Syrah grapes are sourced from two incredible vineyards in the Napa Valley - Hudson in Los Carneros and Stagecoach on Atlas Peak. These unique AVAs provide this wine its signature characteristics. The cool, foggy Hudson Vineyard imparts this wine with a smoky and gamey nose layered with white and black pepper along with some floral notes, while the sunny and rocky Stagecoach Vineyard expresses the typicity and elegance of mountain fruit - intense and concentrated, with aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, and huckleberry pie. On the palate, the Hudson Vineyard brings beautiful, bright raspberries, black pepper, finesse, and a lively acid, whereas the Stagecoach Vineyard adds dark fruit, great concentration and formidable structure. The whole-cluster fermentation adds a deeper level of complexity mixing in a dash of green peppercorn and spice on the nose while the oak imparts a toasty smoke on the nose and a silky bittersweet chocolate to the finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Syrah is gorgeous. Loads of flowery blackberry and cassis fruit, along with spice and forest floor jump from the glass of this killer Syrah. It is no wimpy wine at 15.4% alcohol, but the complex aromatics, the stunningly full-bodied, rich flavors of blue and black fruits, the nicely integrated acidity, tannin and wood, all make for a compelling example of Syrah to drink over the next 10-15 years - perhaps even longer. This is a great effort.

Wine SpectatorPolished and impeccably structured, with blackberry and smoky meat aromas and layered, rich flavors of licorice and espresso that linger toward big but firm tannins. Drink now through 2027. 1,124 cases made.
