Tasting Notes

These grapes are grown in the most distinctive terroir for Syrah in the United States and arguably, the world. Our Reserve Syrah is a New World-style, which spends time in a higher percentage of new oak than our other Estate Syrahs. Hedonistic aromas of cured meat, smoked sea salt, Castelvetrano olives, umami, peppered bacon, wet stone, and sweet herb. On the palate, the texture is supple with delicious flavors of dark cherry, umami, olive, prosciutto, dark chocolate, and clove. The finish is brilliant and constantly evolving. Enjoy!

Drink 2023-2033.
