Every vintage, we attempt to assemble a small bottling of Syrah from throughout our vineyard that most expresses the potential of this unique site: a Syrah with exceptional purity of fruit, textural depth, vivid acidity, exceptional length, and the promise of aging thoughtfully.
Our 2021 Reserve Viognier is a satisfying balance of energy, weight and delicacy. We find aromas of honeysuckle and jasmine, vanilla bean, ripe lemons, confectioners sugar, herbs, and stones. There is a pleasant symmetry between refreshing acidity and layers of lush polished tannins.
Bright red in color and its aromas are equally energetic, with ripe dark strawberry, raspberry, and rhubarb, with white pepper and exotic spice, and a dusty mineral component reminiscent of smoothed stones.
A refreshingly acidic and mineral driven Viognier showcasing generous floral aromatics and tropical fruit notes. Fermented using native yeasts and allowed to age on lees for 6 months before bottling providing a beautiful, rounded texture.
Lovely floral red raspberry aromas and pink grapefruit provide a foundation of freshness that is balanced with the warmth of subtle evocations of salt, herbs and vanilla cream. Moderated generosity describes the palate, with guided acidity, rounded layers, and quiet but confident tannins.
Lavish honeycomb, ripe white peach and apricot, summer flowers and grasses, and a touch of crème anglaise and baking spice. Texturally, this wine is plush, with considerable breadth and depth, and structured velvet tannins.
Aromatically led by peach and nectarine notes and accentuated by blood orange peel, white pepper and oyster shells. On the palette, mirabelle plums, kumquat and lavender are present. The wine has the textural density of red wine and acidic profile of a white. These elements make this wine a dream for food pairings.
Aromas of lemon and grapefruit juice and zest, cut apples, and white flowers dominate the 2022 Spiral, with elements of mixed fresh herbs and wet stones. The texture gives breadth and suppleness through the mid-pallet and finishes with a thirst quenching vibration of acid and tannin.
There is bright energy with sweet fruited textures, focused at first and broadening on the mid-palate, and lengthening to resolved but age worthy tannins with flavors of boysenberry, fruit leather and chaparral, with raspberry leaf tea, cedar, and just a hint of cured meats.
Vinous brambly blackberry, blueberry, dusty wet river rocks, notions of dried thyme, and faraway vanilla beans come out of the glass. With a little time, this well-preserved wine opens up with aromas of red plum and raspberry, rock salt and a bit of lavender.
