2006 Syrah, Shanel Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
A new label for us, but not a new bottling. The Shanel Vineyard is the same vineyard we bottled as Sonoma Coast Syrah from the 2004 and 2005 vintages. It's a vineyard on the southeast face of Sonoma Mountain planted, to our design, in 2002 by Gary and OJ Shansby of San Francisco. We're finally cleared to vineyard designate it, and it's a pleasure to do so.
