Fruit from our Tyee vineyard in Vallecito. Smells dry, almost like the dust in the vineyard. Raspberry and heavy toast from American oak barrels. Mouthfeel is rich and smooth. The heavy toast leaves a sweet fruit flavor with a chocolate and tobacco finish. Scotty, our winemaker, thinks it’s one of our best. Syrah is back and it’s great. Pair it with heavier meats and winter fare.
