Their “value” Syrah is, as always, a blend of the several great Syrah sites around the state. A blend of the ultra-cool climate (Bien Nacido), cool climate (Hudson, Griffin’s Lair, Weill and Walker Vine Hill) and, for the first time, some Syrah from Bedrock Vineyard. Their hope is that this wine shows off the potential of this great variety in California. Fermented with indigenous yeast with all lots seeing some whole cluster percentage (20-100%), the wine showcases the dark pepper, perfume and elegance that Syrah can achieve at its best. This is their version of Crozes-Hermitage— distinctly Syrah but at a tariff that allows it to be good company for a weeknight repast.
