Adventure. Did someone say BBQ? Rich concentrated fruit flavors of raspberry and blueberry mingle well with bay leaf and sandalwood. Flavors of black pepper, hints of venison and dark bitter chocolate  The finish is long and pleasant, just like a summer BBQ with friends.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Coming into the third year of drought, the 2015 harvest also had colder weather during flowering which led to a poor fruit set, and small, uneven grape clusters. Yields were down significantly, but quality was excellent. Summer warmth, with no rain, had picking begin in early August and end before October. Most affected were our Pinot Noir yields, but we are pleased with the full range of flavors that a concentrated vintage can provide.
Production Notes
All of our fruit is hand harvested with scissors rather than knives to prevent bruising and lacerations during the pick. Everything is de-stemmed and never crushed. A longer cold soak coupled with a very high percentage of whole berries throughout the fermentation process brings layers and complexity to the final wine. The Syrah has a greater percentage of “bleed” to bring more concentration while less time on the skins brings more fruit character to the final wine. The wine is racked clean into French oak and aged for 10 months.
Winemaker Notes
The structure is firm and powerful with rich, dark chocolate aromas followed by macerated blackberry fruit flavors with nicely punctuated notes of black pepper spiciness.
