You should only make wines you love to drink...
When fruit from this Atlas Peak vineyard became available to us, we decided it was the perfect time for syrah to return to our portfolio after nearly a 10 year absence. This low-yield, high elevation vineyard, is located on the steep westerly slopes of Atlas Peak and is meticulously maintained by growers Phil and Hilary Brody. We eek out a ton of fruit per vintage and each drop is liquid gold. The wine has a classic syrah profile - earth, spice, meatiness with refined but ample tannins. This is a classic, cool climate-like Syrah to enjoy over the next 8-10 years.
