The 2019 vintage is comprised of 55% Cole Creek Vineyard and 45% Rodgers Creek Vineyard. Our Syrahs are grown in the cool climate of the Sonoma Coast which offers a style reminiscent of the Northern Rhone regions of Hermitage and Cornas: aromas and flavors of smoked meat, white pepper, green olive and grapefruit, coupled with a silky texture and savory flavor.
